ALBERT FENN, WW1
« on: Monday 29 June 20 10:27 BST (UK) »
Private ALBERT FENN, Suffolk Regt, died on 10 July 1917 at Ten Mile Bank, Hilgay, Norfolk, aged 22. His next-of-kin was Edward Fenn, West Cliffe Villa, Fordham Rd, Isleham, Cambs. Albert is commemorated on the Isleham War Memorial and on the memorial plaque in At Andrew's Church, Isleham. His name does not appear in St Andrew's burial records.
Albert's place of burial was not recorded as a War Grave and is not known to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission.
Does anyone out there know where Albert Fenn is buried?

You didn't list that he is commemorated by the CWGC - on the Brookwood memorial:

https://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/75451956/fenn,-albert/

CWGC - THE BROOKWOOD 1914-1918 MEMORIAL was designed to commemorate Commonwealth casualties who died in the UK and Ireland who have no known grave. The majority of the casualties are servicemen and women from the land forces of the United Kingdom, who subsequently died in the care of their families. They were not commemorated by the Commission at the time but, through the efforts of relatives and research groups, including the “In From The Cold” Project, these casualties have since been found.

As you say, the Brookwood Memorial is a record of those with no known grave . The purpose of my search is to try to find his grave so that CWGC can be requested to provide a suitable commemoration at that location.
Thank you for your reply.

Have you tried St Mark's at Ten Mile Bank?

St Mark's is on my "to do" list; thanks for the suggestion.
