Trying to find grave of Pte ANTHONY CROLLA, 9th Batt. King's Regt (Liverpool) who died on 11 April 1940. Very little info to hand at present. May have had Manchester connection. Any suggestions?

According to the Death indexes, he died in Melton Mowbray District, Leicestershire.  Maybe he's buried there and memorialised in Brookwood?

Edited to say: Oh dear.  Seems he took his own life. :(
