    I'm rubbish at converting those grid reference thingy's. Can someone convert 273843 to a location today please?

    It's for a chap that was dug up and reburied in Dunkirk.

    TIA.

    Many thanks. It looks like he was buried in Dunkirk cemetery and reburied in the same place. I wonder if they were all buried in the civilian cemetery with the WW1 graves down the road and then re-buried in the CWGC cemetery as we know it today.

    Penny dropped - he died at the CCS with the 'Red House' and was buried in the field next door and then moved to Dunkirk Cemetery.
