A google search brings up loads of info for him. Might be worth seaching the online Newspaper archives around the date of his death to see if anything about his funeral turns up.

Hi Andy

Thanks for your reply.
I have looked at dozens of websites and have lots of information but there is no information on where he is buried.

Hi Lyne .... the local Council in the area where he died should have burial details ...including the cemetery he's in. I found the Lewisham Council very helpful for my grandad (d1950) ....they gave me his plot number too.

The British Newspaper Archives only go up to 1950 but a library local to the area may have more recent copies.

He lived Tilehurst Road per probate if that narrows it down.
