Edward Whitehead's burial at Crompton has been accepted by CWGC.  As part of the Church Plot they haven't found the specific location (or it may be a common grave with multiple names), so a Special Memorial willl be erected with the standard CWGC design and superscript "Buried elswhere in this cemetery".
https://www.cwgc.org/find-records/find-war-dead/casualty-details/75467679/edward-whitehead/
"Recent research has shown that this casualty is buried here, however it has not proved possible to identify the exact location of his grave. As a result, the Commission is now in the process of producing a special memorial to commemorate him in this cemetery. Please contact the Commission for more information before planning a visit."
Not forgotten
