What happened to French servicemen buried in the UK after the war. Were they exhumed and taken for reburial in France or left in the UK. I have a french serviceman who was buried next to an English serviceman on the same day. The english serviceman is in the same plot, with other CWGC plots, that he was buried in, in 1940. He has a CWGC headstone, but there is nothing for the Frenchman.
