You've slightly misread it Roxy. These are civilian casualties, and they are listed as being buried in Moray County. That's the county and not a specific cemetery.

These would have been people who were perhaps killed in an air raid, or similar circumstances. You'll find a lot on the CWGC listed for London. Glasgow also has a fair number.

To find these burials you would probably need to contact the cemeteries department.

I have a similar problem with the civilian deaths in Dumfries and Galloway that are listed on CWGC. I have found 6 by chance but still need to find the rest. Listed on CWGC but no idea how to find the cemetery.

They may be mentioned in the original registers. If not by name they may mention if civilian casualties are buried there which would narrow down the search.

I'll check and see if I have copies for these counties.

Doh!

I suspected that I had made a mistake - I simply put 'Moray' in the CWGC cemeteries search and that is what came out.

Never mind, it gives me something to investigate now that the nights are drawing in!

Moray County was the Reporting Authority. It does not follow they are buried in Morayshire, in this case.



Patrick Boyle is buried at Bellie, George Duncan at Elgin ( South section) and Daniel Fitzpatrick at Cluny Hill, Forres
No headstone details found for Harold Woodcock in Moray. Local press may have had details.
