Hi

This chap died on 20 February, 1920, and is buried in Fenny Stratford cemetery in Milton Keynes.

I cannot find any records for him at all, on the basis that a fresh pair of eyes might see something I am missing, if anyone has a spare couple of minutes would you have a quick look for him?

Thanks

IanC

Fantastic, thanks guys. Sorry, Mike, I should have said that the only thing I had was the CWGC entry, strictly speaking the cemetery is in Fenny Stratford and as that's where I'm from that's how I think of it, my website is just about Fenny, http://www.freewebs.com/fsitgw/
