There are 257 Commonwealth burials of the 1914-18 war and a further 59 from the 1939-45 war scattered around the two parts of the cemetery. Thoses whose graves could not be marked by headstone are named on a Screen Wall near the Cross of Sacrifice inside the entrance to the West part of the cemetery. George Annis from Edith Weston is buried in area 110 in the East part, not far from the famous memorial to Karl Marx.

To find George's grave: enter Highgate East Cemetery (there is a small fee) and follow the route towards Karl Marx's monument. About twenty yards before you reach it, there is a path on the right. Follow that path for approximately eighty paces and George's headstone is on the right, in the second row back.
