Corporal Cooley and Lance Corporal Garners graves.

 

Both Corporal Cooley and Lance Corporal Garner were 24 when they died. Their service numbers are only six apart suggesting they joined up together. Probably both men grew up together.

 

They are laid to rest next but one to each other, there is no identifying marker on the grave in between.
