The next pages have a list of the Gottses known to have fought in WW1 from Ancestry, CWGC, Find My Past and Forces War Records websites. We have 109 Gottses, out of which I have managed to identify 70 of them by their reference number and the tree number they are in. I have downloaded many of these from Ancestry and FMP and I can share these. If anyone recognises a relative then please let me know and I will amend the list.
On the next pages are summary lists of all the Gottses I know about and what happened to them.
Following those are pages describing many of them, with available records and a better understanding of where those that died actually fell, at least a t lot closer than the standard CWGC view of ‘France & Flanders’. You can access them direct from this list below.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to these
What were they like?
I want to build up a picture of as many of these Gottses as possible, in terms of what happened to them and any other information we have. Vivienne Hayward has already done this for Charles Herbert Gotts with her article in the Nuneaton and North Warwickshire Family History Society magazine describing life in the trenches shown here.
