About the memorial: Addition to family gravestone. An image of John Davis' actual gravestone can be seen on the Burntwood Local History Society website. It is also intriguing that John's sister, died in France, three months after he died. The 1911 census has John Davis living at 27 High Street, Wigtown, with his mother, Elizabeth, and sister, Mary Frances. He was a gardener and was born at Burton-on-Trent (not Wigtown as recorded by CWGC). He is named on Wigtown War Memorial, though his name was added later and is spelled "Davies".
