rosie99 many thanks. aghadowey is correct he was named for his father, born 1st Feb 1892. I believed he served in the navy during WW 1 and was part of the evacuation of Gallipoli. Can I ask are there any more details of inscription or a photo. I have been looking since 2018 believing he had returned to Northern Ireland.

Hortus cemetery is in Southall, Middlesex.  It may be worth asking on Findagrave website if someone can take a better photo or transcribe the wording for you.
