Stumbled across this. Wonder what happened to poor Pte Abbott?

63642 PTE.P.ABBOTT.MANCHESTER REGIMENT. Peter Abbott from Blackburn was accidentally killed on the 27/5/1919 whilst serving in the 20th Battalion of the Durham Light Infantry aged 20. He is buried in Cologne Southern Cemetery.

CWGC site reveals.......

The memorial takes the form of panels set inside the north shelter building at the entrance to the Commonweatlh plots in Cologne Southern Cemetery. It commemorates 25 servicemen of the United Kingdom who died in Germany and who have no known grave. Of these, 19 are known to have died as prisoners and their places of burial are not recorded. The other six died after the Armistice by drowning and their bodies were not recovered.

He appears to have a grave? But I can`t seem to locate were it would be from the cemetery map?

Grave Reference IV. A. 16.

I believe the reference shows him in Plot 4 Row A, both of which are noted on the plan. His head stone will be 16th along the row going away from the cross of sacrifice
