In the UK from Dec 2025 all traditional landline calls will be Voice Over Internet Protocol (VOIP) that is supposed to make these spoofed number calls impossible. I believe though that BT has extended the timescale though.

If it is Dowsett why does it have a 'd' at the end?

He would have been buried close to where he died but quite a bit of the land changed hands time and time again, with accompanying shelling etc. His grave could have been totally destroyed with no remains to be found, that could explain why he is on a memorial but no grave, his resting place is known only to god as they used to say.

There does not seem to be an offence, quite often on these records you see them certified clean or no offences.

80 Liff Road is where he died and the death was registered by his father who lived at the second address.

They would have been buried in Commonwealth war grave cemetery close to where they were found. There was a lot of trouble once the war was over that the remains of the majority of those that died were not brought back but some were. Families could simply not afford to travel pay their respects at their graves and were not happy with governments decision.

They would be buried with military honours and if any family could be found they would be invited to attend. A lot of the terrain was fought for, over and over again and many bodies were simply blown apart during the battles for the area they had been buried in. It is good that his remains would finally get the rest they should have had.

He was discharged due to being convicted by the civil power prior to his enlistment. His record card on National Archives show him receiving the Victory and British medals, nothing about them being taken away.

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.
