    This is Herbert and Daniels on the Brookwood memorial.
    Assumed that the bodies we not recovered hence on Brookwood
    From what I can see it mentions his wife buried in the churchyard cant see Daniels
    Perhaps you could check the burial records.
    The resolution of the plaque is not good to read the names
