[There is an entry on a similar memorial in the nearby village of Trelewis that relates to a William H Martin.
Commonwealth War Graves Commission list 28 names that relate to a W H Martin and 18 names that relate to William H Martin and a further four names that relate to H William Martin. I have researched these names and cannot find a link with Nelson for any of them, except for the above person.]
