Note:

  1. The official Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) database lists Robert’s date of death as 31 December 1917. This is supported by at least three other documents in CWGC’s possession: (1) Imperial War Graves Commission ‘Comprehensive Report (A) of Headstone Inscriptions’ (2) Rocquigny Equancourt Rd. B.C. “F” extract, and (3) Index No. Fr. 398. However, one document Graves Registration Report Form (26 Nov 1920) lists his date of death as 1 January 1918.
