    thanks for the offer but the point of this exercise is to find those who may have graves who are listed on the Brookwood Memorial. I am at present slowly wading through the names finding those who died in the UK & attempting to find the burial place

    Cheers

    Chris

    Great news Chris
    as you know I have been there a few times and the old cemetery on the hill is very overgrown and would be impossible to find.

    Hello Clive

    Re BATH we have a burial register that states he is buried there, but of course at present time we do not know if he has a headstone. Thanks for bumping the Andersons as I will have to have a look tonight when I get in.

    Alistair Douglas Anderson buried at Ruislip June 16 1947 aged 39 no other details. John Scott Anderson buried there June 14 1948. We know that he was KIA in Malaya so family got him repatriated home.
