I wouldn't think so. Sadly he was lost at Sea like so many. Added CWGC source.

There should certainly be something. 20000 airmen are remembered there

I don't think (can't find) any categories for War Memorials, only cemeteries. Starting a new thread to get the right attention.
Category is now up and running, Runymede Memorial. Just needs populating.
Thanks 20,000 is a lot to ignore, that's why the Runnymede Memorial was created.  Especially in RAF Coastal Command not many bodies came back for burial where the pilot was killed or incapacitated.  I was shocked at how few graves there were at St Michaels Cemetery near Leuchars, Scotland.

Not to mention the Bomber Command crews lost in the North Sea in disabled aircraft.  Fighter Command losses were much lighter with generally only one man per aircraft.
There are war memorials (not just cemeteries) listed in categories.  At least one profile I manage is so listed.

Uh .. that category has been around for a while: 


Unless there's more than one Runnymede Memorial.

To note: it was originally "[[Category:Runnymede Memorial]]" but was renamed to [[Category:Runnymede Memorial, Runnymede, Surrey]] back around April 2019.

This new category:

duplicates the one that already existed that had its name changed.

Don't duplicates need to be merged?
