    Hi Henk
    Clinnick,19, Exten,26, Perry,20, Smith,29, Stevenson,19, and Wright,30, are all registered at Hereford.This may put them in the collision at Langwardine which seems to be too small to even figure on Google Maps
    Judd,21, and Corrie,19, registered at Lichfield,Staffordshire the right area for an incident at Tamworth,?N9214
    Newman,22,(first name Herbert on the register,CWGC has Hubert) and Wade,23, are registered at Sleaford and E Kesteven, Lincolnshire right for Cranwell South,and AB166
    Coke,21, registered at Abingdon,then Berkshire now Oxfordshire
    David T Jones,36, registered at Swansea,Glamorgan
    Thomas E Jones,27,registered at Pontypridd, Glamorgan.A long way from Dover Your's is buried in S Wales when his wife came from Nr Norwich.Jones is a VERY common Welsh name and he might have died at his parent's home
    Emily Hayburn, 28, registered at East Glamorgan
    Rice,21, registered at Bristol
    Tipler,22, registered at Wenlock, Shropshire
    Kathleen Mollaghan, not in Engand and Wales,but with the info you have on her probably a death in Scotland
    Regards
    Dick

    the correct spelling for the Hereford location is 'Lugwardine'.
