    No sign of Washington in Scotland or elsewhere. One to check for Northern Ireland if I ever can.

    John Washington actually died in 1944 per the scanned Grave Registration Refort form on CWGC.

    And the death register index seems to confirm that
    Deaths Jun 1944 (>99%)
    Washington John 31 Newmarket 4a 981

    i'll notify the CWGC and index the 440622 unaccounted page.
