If you contact them before your visit, they may be able to tell you where the grave is in the cemetery. 
I do know of another researcher who found his ancestors grave, and then later had a headstone made and put on the grave during a subsequent visit to the UK.

Pat ...
Every time I find an ancestor,
I have to find two more!

Dear Pat, thank you for the contact details Leiston Cemetery. I rang the number and a lovely lady told me that was "many years ago". So that is not the number now and she did not have one to offer. So, I went to Leiston, just home now. Beautiful day and found the cemetery easily. On the left in Waterloo Avenue as you enter Leiston - the local town council people told me the cemetery is under the control of Woodbridge office. Woodbridge rang my mobile and told me the plot number "1230". The Services supervisor has a map and he will contact me. He did and met us at the cemetery and showed me the map - amazingly I had calculated the position while waiting. The map Chris has great detail and we spent some time in the little chapel at the cemetery. So we not only know where but have now visited and seen the grave site (unmarked) in a delightful setting.
Thank you all for your input. There are now new objectives to ponder.

So glad you have had a good day, it was a beautiful day here in south Suffolk too.

Apologies for the incorrect number (perhaps Suffolk Coastal District Council at Woodbridge should update their information).

Did you have time to visit The Long Shop Museum?  This illustrates the importance of Leiston in Suffolk's history.  Not sure if it is open all year round,but certainly worth a visit next time  ;D

Hi Pat, it is not your fault - the number - the lady said she has had other calls. Long Shop Museum closed - so next time for sure.

It was a good day.

Update on the Bedwells in Leiston Cemetery.
Lily Bedwell - no new information unfortunately records are not in existence for that file.

Walter & Annie Bedwell - the 1929 1925 - no new inormation from the town council, however, Diddymiller (rootschat), a distant 2nd cousin that we have become newly acquainted - neither knew the other existed. Diddy has provided Walter as a brother of Lily's mother Elizabeth Bedwell, later Miller dies 1901.

Elizabeth Miller nee Bedwell, not buried in Leiston Cemetery.
There is, however, another Bedwell buried there - Mary Bedwell 17 Oct 1964. Her plot N111 was purchased by a S T Bedwell?
