  • Circumstances of Death Registers, First World War– For clarification, Pte. Morrall was initially buried in the 1st Division burial plot known as CA39, also known as Arras Road Cemetery, Thelus. Those graves were destroyed in subsequent battles and his name now appears on memorial stone #37 in the row at the front of Nine Elms Military Cemetery in that same area. This is different than the new Arras Road Cemetery, Roclincourt down the road. There is no such place as the Arras Road British Cemetery, as reported on his files on Ancestry.
