Frank does not have a kown grave in Flanders for he is one of the many thousannds who are listed on the Tyne Cot memorial. And yet that is not to say he is not "buried in Passchendaele". He may well have been buried there but they have not been able to locate Frank's body.
And at least "his loving mother Sarah Ann" was spared the agony and misery of losing her son -she died in April 1913, four and a half years before her son Frank
