Hi,

 

Thanks for your endeavours for Driver Mossop:poppy:

 

Fingers crossed its not too long until a headstone is erected above his final resting place in Westnewton, Cumbria.

 

I came across his name while searching Ancestry on a free weekend in 2017. He is buried a couple of miles inland from my holiday caravan site on the West Cumberland coast.

 

Steve
