Here's the photo.  I called into the Barracks but they don't have any information on the old Hospital, no patient records either.

I've taken a more general view of the CWGC graves, plus the church, if you want them.

Thank you so very much for this. It really is very generous of you to go to so much trouble. It looks like he was in hospital for some time and when we get his death certificate the reason may be revealed. I am also waiting for the delivery of  book which relates the history of the 6th Lincs and includes the citations for each bravery award, including the military medal which he received in 1917.

So, once again, thank you. Roots hat is such a valuable resource.

No problem, and if anyone else wants a photograph of the St Giles headstones - just ask  :)
