Just to clarify further. As mentioned, 1431 graves were not concentrated. The grave at Lenham was one of those maintained in a war graves plot. A nice photo of part of the plot here:

After your reply, I have joined the Kent History Forum,which I have found very interesting!
However,still no joy with finding pilots name. Would I be able to contact Neil Barker, if so how?
Many thanks.

Hi

If you haven't found it yet!
Looks like the pilot was Uffz. Manfred Langer, who was shot down on 19th September 1940.  Entry in book can be found by Googling his name. 

Hope this gives you what you are looking for.

Good luck

I have just found your question,I apologise for not answering sooner but not been on forum.
When I registered on Kent History Forum, the admins name  I used was "Kent History Forum". See if that works!
Good luck
