    I believe this memorial is to Ambrose Thorpe Biggadike of the Suffolk Regiment but I cannot find him on Ancestry or FMP. No joy on CWGC website either. I am just indexing images for FindaGrave and it may be that he is buried in France rather than Whittlessey cemetery where I took this. Unfortunately I cannot read the year but it could be 1916.

    That will be it. Brilliant. I suppose Laura must have remarried...
