15th Bn Sherwood Foresters (Notts & Derby Regiment). Thomas Whittaker was killed on 14 October 1918 and is buried in Dadizeele New British Cemetery, Belgium (grave ref. VI. F. 6). CWGC - History of Dadizeele New British Cemetery (extract): 'The village of Dadizeele (now Dadizele) was in German hands for much of the First World War until reached by the 36th (Ulster) Division, and taken by the 9th (Scottish) Division, on 29 September 1918. Severe fighting followed on 1 October, at Hill 41, a little south of the village. Dadizeele New British Cemetery is in fact an extension of the communal cemetery. It was made after the Armistice when graves were brought in from other burial grounds and from the battlefields of 1918 [burial grounds listed].'
