    Help - I am trying to research a distant relative who was KIA in Holland on Nov 1st 44 and now rests in the CWWG in Nederweert. Recently a local family in Nederweert have "adopted" his grave to assist in its maintainance together with a couple more they had previously adopted. William was my mothers cousin and from research we know that Mum was a witness at William's sisters wedding so the families appear to have known each other well. I am trying to assist the Dutch family by trying to fill out details of William, the circumstances of his death / location of the action and the icing on the cake would be a photo of him - trying to put a face to a name. Any and all help would be graetly appreciated. The attack on the Fortress Belrick appears to be the most likely event in terms of date where William was killed.
    Thanks
