Arthur is buried in Doddington Road Cemetery, Wellingborough. Plot E.224
I find it a very strange coincidece that we have two non-commemorations from Wellingborough, when the majority are in north west.  I don't think Lilleyman and Cole were part of the same drafts either.

I've confirmed Arthur Cole has no Headstone at Doddington Road, Wellinborough.  I can't find any curent family members.
