Hi and Welcome to RootsChat,

Cox is a very popular surname, so perhaps you could let us know if he was Army or Navy or Air Force and for which country?    Also, perhaps ... do you know which year he died?

Sorry for all the questions, and if you don't have the answers handy, well, it may just take a little longer to proceed. 

Commonwealth War Graves Commission is a good online starting point.

Just going on the name, there is no death recorded on the CWGC site which you may have looked at already.  The name doesn't appear in the FreeBMD listings 1939-1950 so as majm says, more information may help.

Or Major Allen Howard Cox US Army born 1895 interred in Puerto Rico National cemetery 1974? Or Allen Howard Cox born 1873 Massachusetts died 1944 or.....

Or best not guess while we wait for Debralou to give more information  :)

I only noted one, because as you say until, we get more details from  Debralou it was not worth doing any more.
