WMR, formerly UKNIWM, finally recorded this in November 2015, as memorial 69569.

I have edited this tonight to include the new (2012) memorial and add the names.

As stated elsewhere I am now able to record memorials within days, and the office are also now moving far faster than in the past having cleared the significant backlg which had developed.
