If you Google 'British War Memorial' site comes up where you can search for soldier and then see if there's a photo of the grave on file to order.

Hello I am Thomas Brennan's son who is buried in Naples,  italy.  I have been trying to contact the Brennan side of my family who's have had no contact with and have lived overseas for many years.
Look forward to hearing from you.
