Chris Lock, I have no doubt whatsoever that the soldiers have a respectful burial whether they are known or unknown. Without going over the same ground that has been debated on this forum all I and others ask is that a proper notification of these burials is given by the CWGC, as indeed they have agreed to so do via their web site. This is only an extension to the informal system still in being where certain individuals and groups are notified of such occasions directly by the CWGC. I can see no logical reason whatsoever why these burials of our countrymen or those of Australia etc should be subjected to any form of secrecy at all and if members of the public wish to attend such services then let them. After all whether we like it or not these soldiers died in our name.
