DC attached confirming GSW and TB as cause of death. Thomas is buried in an unmarked grave in Moston RC Cemetery 1367.

I've found that Thomas' widow also died of TB and then her sister Ellen followed, having nursed her sister.  I have photo of Thomas.

UPDATE for burial.

Current family members confirm there is no headstone on Thomas Moran's plot, which he shares with other family.  She approves a new CWGC commemoration, if approved.
