The Grid reference on the concentration sheet states his body was found at " T.3.b.9.8"

This will need to be prefixed with the Sheet number for the Wulverghem area which is 28.

The full reference is therefore 28.T.3.b.9.8

If you enter this into the search box at The Great War British Trench Map Co-ordinates Converter

you will see that the initial burial site was about 800 yards to the West of the present day Wulverghem -Lindenhoek Road Military Cemetery.

Hi,

 

There is also a good map in the 34 Division HQ diary (here on Ancestry) which shows how the line moved forward during the attack at the end of  August/start of September.

 

Regards

Chris
