Not even buried in the same cemetery as Bridget. I spent ages trying to find his burial on the Rookwood site. You have to search mac f, mc f, macf, mcf

I can't see a funeral notice for John.

Perhaps the hospital determined the place of burial.

John's date of death is written on a page of his service record on NAA. A letter from the army telling him to apply for a pension after he was invalided home early.
