William D Cassidy was originally from the Waima region of the Hokianga district. He was of Te Mahurehure descent. My former wife was his niece, her mother being his sister. In 2005 we were living in the UK at the time and it was relatively easy to book a holiday in Tunisia, and hire a car to track down his gravesite at Enfidaville Cemetery. Although it is a moderate Muslim country Tunisia is very tolerant and the respect shown to the Commonwealth War Graves is outstanding. A very well kept ground with plenty of flowers growing around the graves. We were proud to be able to make our little Hikoi and pay our respects to all of the servicemen from the Allied nations at rest in this beautiful, peaceful cemetery. May they all rest in peace.

I am writing to ask the name of Your Former Wifes Mother please.  I believe William and Tom were all Brothers and Tom was the only one of the three that returned to New Zealand and Married My Mothers Sister Annie.  Their eldest daughter was named Tunisia Ann Cassidy and I was named after Her.  I also believe there was another Brother whom I guessing to be Henry but the address details don't seem to go with the Profile so I may be wrong.  I was told Both William and Henry died within minutes of one another in the same place so only Tom came home from the War.  I guess what i'm wanting to know.  Were there any other Cassidy's buried near William Diamond??? 

Would love to know

Regards, Tunisia

Kia ora Tunisia

Just a heads up that you can search the Commonwealth Cemeteries online.  I had a look for your Cassidy whanau & it looks like William is the only one buried at Enfidaville War Cemetery in Tunisia:


I narrowed down the search by selecting World War II & served with New Zealand.
