Welcome to The Path of the Remembered,

A crowd-sourced tribute to thousands of people connected to the Battle of the Somme

Niamh Flannigan for Patrick Flannigan

Dedicated to Patrick Flannigan

by Niamh Flannigan

Patrick Flannigan has the same surname as me and that is what I was looking for when searching for my soldier. He was killed at the Battle of the Somme on 25th of September 1916. He didn’t get a grave stone and is only remembered on the Thiepval memorial. As he didn’t have a gravestone I decided to create on for him in remembrance. This is to remind people to not just remember the gravestone names, but the unknown and those without a gravestone. He was a member of the East Yorkshire Regiment. His age was unknown.
