  General Notes:

Dear Mr Peake
Thank you for your e-mail. Yes, the Minster has both a war memorial and Military Chapel for the East Yorkshire Regiment. We have checked the listings for the First War and there is an entry from the 1st Battalion for 'Peake J' which appears in the list of Private soldiers . I regret that there are no other details available from the memorial.
You are of course welcome to visit the Minster and should you do so please ask a virger to direct you to the chapel and memorial where it is quite easy to find your relative.
All good wishes for the festive season
Yours sincerely
Christine Kilburn
Parish Secretary

Location: St Souplet is a village about 6 kilometres south of Le Cateau, which is a small town approximately 20 kilometres south-east of Cambrai. St Souplet British Cemetery lies to the south-west of the village after the village of St. Benin.
Historical Information: St. Souplet village was captured by the American 30th Division on the 10th October, 1918. The American troops made a cemetery of 371 American and seven British graves on the South-West side of the village, on the road to Vaux-Andigny; and a smaller British cemetery was made alongside. The American graves were removed after the Armistice, one being taken to the British cemetery with the seven British graves; and other British graves were brought in from other burial grounds and from the battlefields. There are now nearly 750, 1914-18 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, one-fifth are unidentified and special memorials are erected to 55 soldiers from the United Kingdom, buried in other cemeteries, whose graves could not be found. The cemetery covers an area of 2,504 square metres and is enclosed by a stone rubble wall.
