PWSTS War Dead

Hello Andy,
                     Believe I have found another of your casualties named on the PWSTS Memorial.
I have recently undertaken the task of compiling the Deaths at Sea Register 1939-1945 for the National MNA covering all those omitted from the CWGC remit whose deaths were not war related. The files are being put into Excel. Doc. typed up from information on digital photos acquired by the MNA covering the war years. The idea is to have these men given some sort of recognition alongside those from the three armed services who were granted war grave status no matter how their deaths occurred. I have over 4000 pages to read through and seperate the war dead and non war dead and type up into a document. These will then be submitted to the CWGC for approval.
While compiling the deaths for the years 1939-1940, one of the names caught my eye after the research I did for you some time ago. I am almost certain this is your man.
LIDDLE, 3rd Mate, GEORGE. SS Bankcrest. Merchant Navy. Age 27, of 23 Cliftonville Gardens Monkseaton, born at Whitley Bay. Died 2nd January 1940. (Cause of Death. Fractured Skull while at Hampton Roads, Virginia)
Will update any other info. I may find on those still unaccounted for from PWSTS.
Rgds Billy

As some of the PWSTS Association members may know, I have for a number of years been researching those members who lost their lives in WWII, with 79 of those recorded successfully. I have recently come into some more information on one of those still missing, a Charles De La Haye. Another gentleman I assisted some years back has also been active in research and has actually traced his grave. Records show that Charles De La Haye died on the 11th March 1943 in Redhill hospital from TB and is buried in the London Borough of Barnet, Hendon Cemetery. Hopefully I will now be able to trace the last ship he served on before his death.

Attached is a photo of his grave.
