    Hi to you all,Frank Shaw of East Dereham in Norfolk is constructing a Memorial website for all the towns and villages in the Breckland catchment area.During the research some names on the memorials are proving to be very elusive,one that has just arisen is Margaret Knott (WAAF) on the Watton memorial,if any of you can throw any light on this it would be much appreciated.There are others that are as yet proving very hard to find,WW1 has been easier to research than WW2.I have put the website links on this posting and if you can help with identification of any others that have not any information it would be much appreciated.Also if you have any photos etc.that may help on the site they to as well.Franks email can be found on the sites,Many thanks in advance,

    Tim.

    Hi Tim and welcome to the forum.

    I've just checked the CWGC for Margaret Knott and she's not listed. What do you know if anything about her?

    Good luck with the research

    Hi Andy,I do not know anything other than what is on the stone,the name Knott does occur in this area in both wars,it could be she died after the CWGC cut off date but death was attributable to the war,this is the case on other casualties I have come across,or it could be she has just been overlooked,the forum might shake something loose with any luck,many thanks for your reply,

    Tim.

    No worries Tim,

    There's a really helpful chap on here called Chris who helps get a lot of people who died as a result of the war get added and remembered on CWGC.

    There's a few RAF chaps that may be able to help or you maybe looking at local historian-But I'm guessing you know all that.

    Cheers
    Andy
