    His unit on grave registration form on CWGC is 5 ITW which at the time was at Hastings.

    Death registered in Luton, surname spelled slightly differently: Cockcroft James A 23 Luton 3b 1339

    Grave stone from findagrave reads:

    Also The Mother Of The Above Mary Jane Cockroft, Who Died May 4th. 1948, Aged 73 Years. Peace Perfect Peace

    Probate calender also has a James Alphonso Cockroft died 7th Jan 1940, 2 Applecroft Road, Stopsley, Luton

    Differences in middle name and date of death between records and CWGC.
