Possibly this man instead Anne?
Likely the John Anderson of the Gordons listed at Inverurie also.

"Private John Anderson, 4th Battalion Gordon Highlanders, has been killed in action, having been shot in the head while in the trenches. He was the fifth son of Mr James Anderson, Don Cottage, Port-Elphinstone, Inverurie, and before enlisting was a butcher with the Don Co-operative Society at Kemnay."

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....
