It used to be possible to look up individuals like J Nakos on the CWGC register, but this is no longer possible.

The only information I have is that J Nakos was in the Greek Merchant Navy and his date of death is 12th September 1940. His grave location is Joint Grave 556.

It used to be possible to look up individuals like J McGowan on the CWGC register, but this is no longer possible.

The only information I have is that J McGowan was listed by the CWGC as a Civilian (although he is not on the roll of Civilian War Dead) and his date of death is 31st July 1943. His grave location is War Graves Plot, Grave 487.

If I remember rightly it was possible to see these for a brief period during a " glitch " in the system when a site update, later abandoned, was made to the CWGC site. This info is for CWGC internal use, the details are contained on the same database.

Only details of the casualties of Commonwealth forces from both wars and Commonwealth Civilians who died due to " enemy action " during WW2 are on the on-line register available for public inspection.
