Gravestone of Francis Cliffe, Brookthorpe (CWG)

Recent Photograph of Gravestone of Francis Cliffe (CWG) (Brookthorpe)

This is the only Commonwealth War Gravestone in Brookthorpe Churchyard. Its Inscription reads:

551436 Corporal F.A.H. CLIFFE
Royal Air Force
3rd, April 1942 Aged 22

There is a separate flat tablet at the base. It is partly obscured by foliage, but the readable portion records it is in in Loving Memory of Frank & Frances CLIFFE

The CWGC website records the additional information that the Corporal's full name was "Francis Albert Harry", and he was the son of Herbert Frank and Frances Cordelia CLIFFE, of Brookthorpe.
