Leave a tribute or memory of
Eric Norman Tarrant
In memory of my great uncle Eric Norman Tarrant, buried at the Foncquevillers Military Cemetery (18 km south-west of Arras, France). Eric died from wounds received in battle in the Pas de Calais area. This note commemorates 100 years since his death on 3 August 1918. Eric's brother Leonard Terrill Tarrant (my grandfather) also fought in this area of France, but survived his wounds and returned to his life in New Zealand.

My husband and I visited the grave site of my Great Uncle Eric Norman Tarrant on 12 September 2015. The Foncquevillers cemetery is beautifully maintained and quiet, adjacent to a farm. We photographed Eric's grave and those of the other 11 New Zealand soldiers buried near him. I am happy to make those photographs available to relatives of these soldiers should they request these photos. The cemetery, and especially the site of Eric's grave was a picture of roses in flower, and a real tribute to those who support and tend this cemetery.
