 The headstones at Ardwick Cemetery were since removed and it seems the plot is now playing fields, with the burials still in situ.
What happened to the other war grave commemorations when the cemetery was closed?
Is there another Memorial Wall somewhere else?

As Ardwick Cemetery is now a football pitch, William Lloyd with have an alternative commemoration, probably the screen walls at Southern Cemetery, which already commemorates burials in other locations.  It's interesting that William would be the sole commemoration from Ardwick.
