Quote from Conans previous post.
"There was no record I could find of Freda Martin"

Conan,
           I asked for help/info on Roots chat.
           There are 2 plausible answers to the missing Freda Martin.

One is, it could be.............Fred  A.  Martin (there are several on CWGC) but none listing Cobham. One is on the Chatham Navy memorial so could be .
More probably the Freda  is ............ Elfreda Ella MARTIN aged 20 of Gold Street, buried 25 September, 1943 in the burial registers of Cobham.

I was intrigued to see 2 females inscribed on the 2nd world war part of the Cobham memorial.There was no record I could find of Freda Martin but Florence Fairburn Moojen came to a tragic end being on a troop ship sunk by the Japanese.

Linton, St. Nicholas. Presumably the WW1 names on the memorial will be the same as on the plaque. There are an additional three names on the memorial from WW2.

Linton.

Unfortunately the names were not clear enough to photograph and transcribe.
