Should he be on CWGC?

Would someone who died due to war related service in 1924 be entitled to be on CWGC? (His wife was sent a death plaque).

Stephen,

How did he die (if you don't mind me asking?)

and is he burried in a war grave?

He died while having septic teeth removed, they got infected while on active service me thinks. I have copy letters from his wife to War Office saying that he is entitiled to the Death Plaque and scroll, which where granted in 1924. Opps he died in 1923! Sorry.

I doubt he has a war grave, I have been trying to track down his grave for the past few months.

Stephen, this man's place of burial won't be an official war grave because he died outside the dates which the CWGC worked to. These were 4th August 1914 to 31st August 1921. The man wouldn't be listed in the CWGC records for this reason.
