Contact britishwargraves.co.uk, if they have a picture of the headstone they will send it for free.  They list the cemetery on their site.

A search on this site https://www.twgpp.org/ does not produce a result although there is a contact tab.

It is with great difficulty I share with you that in the early hours of 07 August 2021, Maximilian passed away unexpectedly but peacefully.

With deep sadness,

Nice little cemetery - the optimum way to get a picture is always to take one yourself.
