Should have re-read your pm, Paul, I was also at Dukinfield this morning so could have got your man there as well. Do you still need the headstone at Preston or is that the one posted above by BereniceUK?
Paul thank you very much this photo completes 18 Recce. BereniceUK supplied me with Preston.
This is one near to me, the headstone was laid flat until fairly recently. Also a family headstone on the same plot.

Paul thank you very much. The photo I have is of the laid down one.
I went back to Dukinfield so I was able to get you this one...

Grave Reference: Sec. B.2. Dukinfield. Grave 734.

He's also named on Dukinfield war memorial, I've posted photos in the war memorials topic (ditto for Parr at Burscough, BTW).
Paul thank you very much, another cemetery finished. Thank you also for the memorial photos.
I know you've already got this, but I was at Preston Cemetery today and walked past it while looking for another headstone...
Not sure if you are after this sort of thing but
Edwin Bancroft of the 45th Recce
is also remembered on his family grave in Philips Park Cemetery, Manchester (Grave Ref: C/E O-1091)
Hi Clanky, thanks for the photo. It is always nice to see a soldier remembered on a family plot.
Hi Paul, thanks for the photo.
Hi Paul I hope I am doing right by putting this remembrance headstone here.
REED, GEORGE TWEDDELL
Date of Death:27/05/1942
Regiment/Service:Reconnaissance Corps 50th (4th Bn. The Royal Northumberland Fusiliers) Regt.
Grave Reference: 8. C. 8.
Cemetery:KNIGHTSBRIDGE WAR CEMETERY, ACROMA
Additional Information: Son of George and Jane Reed; husband of Jane Elizabeth Reed, of Prudhoe, Northumberland.
Remembered with Honour Haltwhistle Cemetery.
Michael thanks for posting photo it is greatly appreciated.
Not a headstone but possibly of interest if you haven't already got photos of it. In St Christopher's Church, Bare (the northern bit of Morecambe) is this window dedicated to the Carr family.
CARR, PETER BUCKLEY
Service No: 210342
Date of Death: 24/06/1944
Regiment/Service: Reconnaissance Corps, R.A.C., 4th Regt.
Grave Reference: VII, G, 4.
Cemetery: ASSISI WAR CEMETERY
Additional Information: Son of the Revd. Buckley Carr, B.A., and Winifred Carr. B.A. (Oxon.).
The window dates from 1966. So why, 22 years after his death, did they give Peter Carr an incorrect rank?
Hi Berenice thank you very much for the memorial photos they are much appreciated, I would never find them without help. As to the rank it could be that he at one time held a temp rank of Capt but I don't have any evidence of this.
Below headstone photo from Assisi War Cemetery
Skerton Cemetery, Lancaster. Is this okay? I think it might photograph better on a sunny day.
Just found I have this one too. Colne Cemetery.
Hi Berenice, Thank you very much for the 2 photos. That's 2 more cemeteries crossed off my list.
