Congratulations, as ever, Chris. Quite a crop from this one cemetery. Is there a story behind why so many men ended up on memorials to the missing when they actually had a grave in Plymouth Ford Park cemetery?

Simple answer; it has taken me several years to get a contact at Ford Park so was never able to check.
