Recent research has shown that Pte Anderson is buried here. Currently the grave is marked with a headstone to an Unknown, but a new headstone bearing his details is now on order. Please contact the Commission for further details. Please note that this casualty was previously commemorated on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial; his name will be removed when the appropriate panel is next replaced.
Up to now there is no info on CWGC site about the Plot Row Grave but I saw photos of the grave and he is next to a couple of Gordons so guessed the grave number meantime....
