"The grave reference from CWG isn't correct, and should read 10619/B4 (vice E1. 10619). It was an interesting cemetery visit in that the staff retrieved the reference book and the grave is (was) privately owned by George and Elizabeth Wilkinson (probably parents). George Wilkinson is buried in the same plot but there is no reference to him on the headstone. The staff also told me that as the grave is (was) privately owned and as that only lasts for 50 years the plot can now be sold to someone else and 5 more burials made in the same plot. I wondered what would happen to the CWG headstone in those circumstances." (J. Rieck)
