    Re HESKETH: Age 36, death registered Liverpool South. From Mrs Maureen Annetts CWGC: "After the war the Commission wrote to the recorded next-of-kin of the casualties (Final Verification Form) to inform personal details as age and names of parents or spouse; the form was not returned to us. I can confirm the address it was sent was in Liverpool".

    AC1 John C. MATTHEWS - 985497 - The Newcastle Evening Chronicle of May 10th 1941 has the following announcement, copied verbatim:

    ROLL OF HONOUR
    MATHEWS. In May, as a result of enemy action, John Clive Mathews (late of Amble), R.A.F., A.C.1, the dearly beloved husband of Grace Irene Mathews (nee Robertson), 15, Coniston Street, Darlington. Cremation West Cemetery, Monday, cortege leaving residence at 2.30 p.m. for service at St. Mathew’s Church. Friends please accept this (the only) intimation.

    I assume whoever typeset the announcement couldn't spell Matthews.

    Regards

    Simon

    Cpl HESKETH - if he died in a hospital, why is he on Runnymede?

    As mentioned in post #1, it must be a lost grave.

    Ancestry.co.uk has a burial register for Holy Trinity Church, Wavertree, Liverpool, which records his burial there. Also buried there is Margaret Hesketh, who was buried the same day. Their address is 78 Kenmore Street, and they were killed by enemy action:

    http://www.old-merseytimes.co.uk/obitsblitz1941.html

    HESKETH, suddenly by enemy action, Henry (Joe) and Maragret (nee WHITTINGHAM), 78 Kenmore Street, Wavertree. Interred Holy Trinity, Wavertree, May 14th.

    Regards

    Simon
