    If it still helps anyone, 1392725 Seddon has a CWGC-style headstone in Abney Park cemetery, UT Pilot. It doesn't show on a CWGC search. It's next to a family headstone on which he appears with his father, died 23/2/38, and brother, shot down over Frankfurt 20/12/43.

    This is R S Seddon's CWGC entry on their database
    http://www.cwgc.org/search/casualty_details.aspx?casualty=2427885

    And this must therefore be his brother, killed over Germany and buried in Germany

    What ever is in Abney would be a memorial to the latter man I imagine.

    there is, hence why we listed him in Newark above:

    Deaths Sep 1942
    Harvey Ronald 27 Newark 7b 351
    Buried in Newark and died in Newark. Most likely him, perhaps a late registration.

    Hello

    Amongst those registered in Weston-super-Mare:

    AC2 Kenneth E. ANNING - 1511890 - the Yorkshire Evening Post of July 1st 1942 reported that he was killed 'during an air raid on a West Country town.'

    AC2 Herbert G. HINKS - 1650931 - a family tree on ancestry.co.uk states that he was 'a member of air force police part of team clearing beach with unexploded bombs'.

    Sgt (Pilot) Arthur TAYLOR - 1042357, and
    P/O (Pilot) John L. HAGGERTY - 121296 - their respective Grave Registration Report Forms confirm their unit as 15 (P) A.F.U.

    LAC (Obs) Joseph E. MORGAN - RCAF - R/113280 - the Lincolnshire Echo of June 30th 1942 reported that he was found hanging by a piece of twine from the iron ladder leading to the emergency exit of an air raid shelter at an R.A.F Station. A verdict from the Coroner of 'suicide while the balance of the mind was disturbed' was challenged F/O William Sellars, R.C.A.F., on the grounds that it was 'possible that someone else may have done it.'

    Regards

    Simon
