Good Work Charlie,
CWGC confirm concentration from Ohrdruf POW Cemetery to NIEDERZWEHREN CEMETERY, KASSEL in 1924

I've found a few unexpected dates on these records.  Capture at Trones Wood on 4th July 1916 is more likely 9th or 10th.  Arthur Watts (also 17th) date of capture at Trones Wood is shown as 19th July.
