    Henk,
    GRO shows a AC1 K.A. Elliott as with HMT Anselm at time of death,(05/07/41), but there's a W.A. Elliott, registered at Wenlock, who matches service number you give, 25/12/41, CWGC

    Hi Henk
    Shead,28, registered at Witney,Oxfordshire,
    Vass,22, registered at Hastings, Sussex
    Whittle,21, registered at Wayland, Norfolk
    Robson,36, registered at Buckrose,E Yorkshire
    I couldn't find Boyes on the register or William E Elliot
    The only Helen Martin(no middle initial) I could find was registered at Paddington, W Central London and she was aged 60 so I don't think she is the one you are looking for. CWGC has no age for their Helen Patricia Martin.
    Regards
    Dick
