I am making a trip to The Somme and Ypres in the summer and I wanted to know if anyone knew of any of the Scottish Burnetts who perished in the First World War in Northern France.

Thanks!

Thank you for your message. It sounds like a very interesting trip.
If you go to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission site on the internet and go into the advanced search facility, enter the surname Burnett, choose France as country of commemoration and then WWI and search you should get a list of 143 Burnetts and information on their background and the cemetery in which they are buried or commemorated.
You will be able to select out those from Scotland.
Hope this is helpful.
Best wishes
