Got the pictures Carol, thank you, I'll get them on my site as soon as I can....
Does his Service Record show if he was wounded and sent to hospital or ill and hospitalised?
I notice the Abbeville plaque says the cemetery was used by 3 hospitals during WW1.
Perhaps he died of wounds at one of these, or perhaps illness as you say.....

I would like copies of any pictures of Cemeteries you have, they can always come in useful on my projects

Hi Spike, Re:
You are not quite correct about TA battalions. The 5th Bn. TA were from Carlisle/ West Cumbria coast, but also the 4th Battalion were Kendal/ Westmorland TA, (served in Burma/India during WW1.)
Cheers Paul.
