A well maintained site with the graves in nice straight lines and so quick and easy to survey.

A very unusual design with thin metal rods wrapped around a central stone pillar.

Thomas Bytheway was a Bevin Boy casualty, conscripted into the forces but diverted into the mines to fill the shortfall of manpower needed to meet the required coal output.

Michael Edward Sloane died in a road traffic accident in Munsterlager, Germany in 1974.

I have been unable to find out more information about this sad incident.

Ivor William Grainger of the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve is buried in El Alamein, Egypt.

Why was no surname included in the inscription?

Aged 105.
