I have a Nurse MIMA MUNRO - Non-com - listed commemorated on Balquidder W.M.Perthshire, Scot. and Strathyre W.M. Stirling District, Scot. Would this be the same casualty?

Edith Hilda Munro is listed in the latest (13 March 2013) CWGC Appeal for Relatives

Nurse Edith Hilda Munro is interred in Plashet Jewish Cemetery, Newham.
I am going to suggest that her grave is unmarked and the CWGC wishes to mark it with one of their gravestones.
