Would like to find the grave of my great uncle, William Henry Sweeney, 103rd Battalion & 2nd CMR, CEF. He was wounded at the Battle of the Somme in 1917 and according to newspaper accounts of the time, "never properly recovered from the ill effects of the wound".
William died 14 May 1927 at County Mental Hospital, Winwick of tuberculosis. I am trying to discover where he may have been buried. William was Roman Catholic and had family in Warrington named Melling.
At the time of his death, William's mother was deceased and his father had remarried, which may explain why the family in Canada has only scanty information about his death and burial.
