James Bocking's grave at Chadderton has been accepted by CWGC as a War Grave. I believe the plot has no marking so James should receive a new CWGC headstone in due course - no idea how long.

CWGC have just sent me a photo of James Bocking's private memorial.  A low profile headstone with a clear inscription for James and his parents.
