I was pleased to meet the grand-daughter of James McIver and explain how members of SMRG had discovered that his name was missing from CWGC's Debt of Honour register and had managed to get him added so that his was now an official war grave. She asked me to pass on thanks from the family and she confirmed that the correct spelling of the name is McIver and that it is the memorial that has his name misspelt.
