    As best I can make out, it would be Stapenhill Road as the other Cemetery listed for Burton is Rolleston-on-Dove. The telephone number is 01283 508570. The cemetery office is open 9am to 5pm weekdays.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Tim,
    Don't have an answer on the civil casualties, but a question:
    Was F/Sgt (Pilot) William SAUL - 1568201, of 587 Sqn killed in this accident (buried Douglas [Gateside] Cemetery, Lanarkshire). Another casualty may have been W/O (Pilot) William ERSKINE - 1365096 (buried Cambuslang [Westburn] Cemetery, Lanarkshire).
    Regards,
    Henk.
