visited there today due to restoration work going on some areas are not accessible at the moment .
managed to do the left half but then the wind & freezing rain won the day (this area is part open & on top of a hill)
 i think you may be disappointed with the results as the marble panels only give surname & initials listed onder each .As soon as hubby transfers them to a chip for me i will start sending them to you however in the little waiting room there is about 8 folders in alphabetical order of names & a little info on the airmen a notice  above states that if books are missing or stolen can you let the commonwealth war graves commission know  phone 01628 507200 You could try & see if they will let you have the info they hold on your airmen .Next time i go to finish off your list i will try to find some of your listed men in the books

My bold emphasis above.

I think you'll find that the info in the folders mentioned above is probably that that is on the CWGC website.

This is the result of a search for Turner, Herbert Harold on that site.
If you click on the arrow to the right of the search result for each individual it brings up some additional info.

This site may also prove of interest aircrewremembered

This is the search result for  Turner, Herbert Harold on that site. N.B. search using forename initials.
Active links are now (after 13/04/2018) indicated by bold red italics. Just click on them.
The only stupid question is the one not asked

WILSON; Lancs, Lanrks.
BERRY; Lancs.
BORASTON; Salop, Worcs,
TYLER; Salop, Herefords.

interesting .A quick glance at these as several people where searching in them at the time made me realise the hard work that had gone into these folders. it is a pity the area is so hard to get to off the beaten track & quite a walk from the nearest parking area there where a few disabled parking spots inside the grounds but at the moment taken up with several mounds of soil ,skips & a digger. A lovely well kept area both in the memorial & grounds. my remark ref just surame & initials was because the original poster stated he wanted high res photos & i thought he may have expected more detail

In addition to using the person's name one may search using other criteria, such as the aircraft SERIAL No. in this case L4126, this will return a list of all the crew on the flight.
