So what do I do now...?

#1
Hi,
My names Sophie, I'm 14, and I'm really interested in genealogy. I have spent ages trying to trace my great-great-granddad who died in the first world war, but so far have really struggled. I had no idea of his regiment, just his name, roughly where he lived and the name of his wife. My great great aunt's son in law spent a lot of time looking in to it (he even went to France to try and do some research) but he found out nothing.
But then, at the beginning of June, I emailed the Commonwealth Wargraves Commission, but assumed that they weren't going to reply after all this time. Then, when I got in this afternoon, I checked my email and they had replied, so now I have his name, regiment, unit, service number, age, date of death, where the cemetery is, his exact plot, and what number and road he lived at.
So now I need help, cause the question is, what do I do now? :confused:
Thank you for your help :)
