Armed Forces / Re: War Graves Week Newark Nottinghamshire

That is a lovely looking cemetery, I wish my local one was like that. Ours was opened in 1857 and the war graves are dotted all over the site surrounded by headstones that have been laid down. The friends group does the best it can but people do not respect it as a cemetery should be.

If you have not done it already I would look to see who the witnesses at the marriages of his sisters were, and a slightly longer shot see who registered the deaths of them and their spouses in case it was John.

Did he marry in Scotland? If so the marriage certificate should tell you who is parents were and if they were deceased, that would give you some names to search for.

I know you say that you do not think he went to Australia but you should consider the possibility he did. If he followed his father before 1914 he may have come back almost straight away as part of the Australian Army possibly to Gallipoli. Their records unlike ours are intact and I believe it possible to search them online although I don't know how. It is worth a try to cover all bases.

It is possible that he did the unthinkable and moved to England.

I have found with parts of my tree that Alice and Alison are interchangeable. Some records have one and others have the other but are the same person.

The 1920 marriage is not him, the mother on that one is a Jane Downes.

It has been a while since I looked at one but if I remember rightly it is basically just a list of names with their rank and date of death. Not enough information for you to be absolutely certain that it is the person you are looking for. I may be wrong and I am certain someone will say if I am.  ;D

It says Mill Hill contains the Netherlands Field of Honour which I think explains everything, his next of kin or remaining family would have had to give permission for his remains to be moved though.
