|Vonderene||Thorpe Smith Farmer - St Nicholas, Barkston|
Thorpe Smith's occupation was Farmer, this was not his name. Unfortunately the monumental mason decided to carve this the same size as his name. Obviously the same applied to his wife Sarah. If you look very, very carfully (it is very small) there is a comma between the Smith and the Farmer.

Thanks for the accurate and informative summary of my Dad's life. Excellent photo of his headstone without the usual green mossy coating. The Canadian Annex at Brookwood Commonwealth War Cemetery is always shadowed by the magnificent surrounding trees which encourages the moss to grow.

Hello, you are welcome for the edit for Wilbur Tidwell, but I think you have to still click on your 'Edits' tab on your profile page and approve my suggestion.
Glad to be of help,

Thank you for confirming that.
I figured that it had to be Cavalry, as I couldn't think of anything else; but, for all I knew, it might have been Cavan or Cavendish or something.
All the best,
Iain. Not Ian!

The soldier in question is Private P.J. Wadsworth, in Southport (memorial number: 137232733).
It doesn't say that on his stone, but I looked it up on the C.W.G.C. for further details, and have assumed that Cav is Cavalry. If you know better, please let me know.
As you say, most of the Corps who died in the First War just have A.S.C. on their gravestones, but there are at least two in Southport who are Royal, from 1919. Now, of course, they are the Army Logistics Corps. Change for change's sake, I regret to say.
All the best,
