Final Resting Places?

More commemorative than morbid, just wondering how many concertina "founders" final resting places have been identified?

 

We know Sir Charles Wheatstone is buried in Kensal Green cemetery in London (with a surprisingly plain headstone), and William Kimber's headstone has that wonderfully carved stone concertina and Morris bells in Headington Quarry, Oxfordshire.

 

The hunt was on at one time for Professor Maccann's final stop - any news? 

 

But what about Charles Jeffries, Louis Lachenal, George Jones, Harry Crabb, Giulio Regondi, Perci Honri, etc?

 

If anyone can find these folks, it's the sleuths here at cnet!

There is no credible trace of him amongst Liverpool's extant burial records - so if he used that name or was recognised as such at time of death he is probably buried elsewhere. His last known Liverpool addresses suggests he is unlikely to have been buried out of borough (it was in proximity to most of the City's main cemetries) unless he had moved away or died in another place.
