Cheers Retep ,i found that grave around 15 years ago , it was  not visible to the eye so I dug down around a foot or so and found the stone , (good job I don't keep digging ) there is just the grave no and the initial  GS  on the slab so no words of love for Judd it seems. ; My maternal mother told me where it was as she had been there when he was buried ,,  The Sherwoods have never answered any correspondence  from me so perhaps they just don't want to know  , all I ever asked for was a photo , l have one but George was cut off and just his left leg showing , Nice shoe though , cheers Cuttsie .
