It looks like this lad is buried in BansteadFetch-8.png

However having contacted All Saints Banstead he is not buried in the churchyard - I wonder if any one else can suggest a place of burial

2Lt L J Mitchell of No 94 Sqn RFC was killed in an accident when flying Avro 504J B4258 on 22 December 1917. No 94 Sqn was then based at Harling Road, having been formed at Gosforth on 31 July 1917 with a nucleus from No 55 Training Squadron. It went to France equipped with the SE 5a on 31 October 1918.

Airmen Died says that 2Lt Mitchell's burial place isn't known.
