Joseph Locker died from TB that was not caused by his Service, but Pension records repeatedly say the condition was aggravated by exposure. Has anyone checked DC records to see if this was his cause of death? I wonder if he could be an omission by CWGC?

Go for it Garry, I'm happy to order the DC if IFCP think it is worthwhile. Tim
With support from Shred, Mack and the In From the Cold Project I'm pleased to report Joseph Locker is now commemorated by CWGC. If anyone finds his grave after Shred's great efforts, it would be a bonus. Here's Joseph's new CWGC data:-
Joseph Locker Remembered with Honour United Kingdom Book of Remembrance In Memory of Corporal 8937, 2nd Bn., Manchester Regiment who died on 11 August 1916 Age 30 Son of Isabella Locker; husband of Charlotte Locker of Broughton, Manchester.

The above man had the rank of "Trooper". If we stick to Sergeant it is more likely to be: Name: William Whitehead Birth Place: Salford, Lancs Death Date: 14 Apr 1917 Death Place: France and Flanders Enlistment Place: Manchester Rank: Sergeant Regiment: Border Regiment Battalion: 1st Battalion Regimental Number: 20503 Type of Casualty: Died of wounds Grave Reference: VI.

From memory I am sure that I checked the local papers for a burial without success. The weekly burial lists that were printed in the local papers were pretty comprehensive (not saying that they were 100%), so may not be worth paying the £16.00 for. Also, Salford City Council will not have a record if he was buried in a local churchyard.
Tim has been able to discover that Joseph Locker is buried in Agecroft Cemetery.
Well done to Tim for not giving up on this. His persistence has paid off and the CWGC will be able to now update their records detailing where Joseph is laid to rest.
Buried in the same grave is Arthur Bunn, M.M., who served during the First World War with the Royal Field Artillery (106194). The 1918 Absent Voters shows Arthur as registered at 20 Beech Street, Broughton. His Military Medal award was announced in the London Gazette on the 14th December 1917.
