This site is free to obtain photos of headstones and according to the site info they have photographed all the graves in the Adelaide Cemetery, Villers Bretonneux.

, you have to give details
but it does not include panels on memorials where Ralph is inscribed

Vena - if you use the link I posted for you right at the top you can look up those deaths and see an image of the cemeteries where they are buried.

Medals awarded aren't usually shown on the killed in service records.

I'll send you the medal cards that are on Ancestry - check your message inbox in about 5 minutes.
