Welcome to the Forum.

Click on the link at the top left of the page and go to the mother site of this Forum - The Long, Long Trail. Then click on 'Grandad's War' to see how to research your relative.

I assume you have the basic details from the CWGC site but I repeat them below in case.

He will have no grave because either (1) his body was not found or (2) he was found but was not identified and now lies in one of the graves marked 'A Soldier of the Great War - Known unto God'.

Name: EBSWORTH, GEORGE

Initials: G

Nationality: United Kingdom

Rank: Private

Regiment: London Regiment

Unit Text: 1st/13th Kensington Bn.

Date of Death: 01/06/1918

Service No: 495882

Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead

Grave/Memorial Reference: Bay 9 and 10

Cemetery: ARRAS MEMORIAL

The 'Soldiers Died in the Great War' CD adds that he was 'Killed in Action' and that he lived and enlisted in Marylebone, London.
