The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) website of casualties says that a George FOSTER 111489 Driver Royal Field Artillery,age 23.died on 3/11/1918 and was buried in the Churchyard of St John the Baptist,Great Carlton or Carlton Magna. Is this your man ? There was no record of a George on the 4th November 1918 but a total of 21 results for other dates for this name in 1918. This may suggest that he died in the UK and may well have been one of the tens of thousands of Spanish Flu victims of that year, which was pandemic.

Best wishes
