We need to see if there is a headstone on William Lockettt's grave in Weaste and review the condition of any inscription. As this is a common plot, it's likely there is no headstone, so he will have a new headstone if we can gain family consent, or he will be added to the Special Memorial - which will probably require a new addendum panel. Possible contact with family members.
