The new Saggers Virtual Cemetery at Find A Grave currently links 159 Find A Grave Memorials for those with the Saggers or Sagger surname. Over the next months, I’ll add close family members to the Virtual Cemetery as relatives are identified.
And here on the Saggers Families website, I’ll soon be adding additional information on the military Memorials.
Included are burials in cemeteries or memorials in Australia, Belgium, Burma, Canada, Egypt, England, France, Greece, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Libya and New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa and the United States.
Here is the list of cemeteries included right now, listed by country.
I do wonder if these Saggers “inheritances” were ever claimed?

This is a brand-new website for the Saggers One-Name Study and you will see it change over the next few weeks as I add information, stories and some photographs.
I am always interested in corresponding with Saggers and related families and happy to share information. I hope to add many world wide Saggers stories here, so please send any information and stories you can share.
I’ll be happy to link to Saggers related websites and trees too.
This Saggers Study started officially in 2014 in honour of my great uncle Bert (Herbert George Saggers), shown above, who died in WW I while serving in the Canadian Expeditionary Force (CEF).
