Note: As at 2008, the grave is unmarked except for an urn. What could be the remains of a headstone is still embedded in the ground but has been cut off mechanically at ground level. The site is three plots joined together. (Confirmed by checking the numbers of the graves on either side.) The left side is roughly separated by a number of house bricks set loosely on in the ground.
