Good spot about the senile decay. Yeah, I almost 100% certain it's not a case of a son dying here. His son Michael was also a coal porter and he also died at an early age, 57, of pulmonary tubeculosis (supposedly a much higher incidence in coal workers).
One tip I would have is that the co-ordinate system is repeating.
For example, to find a grave 26 B3 West:
1. Go to to the West section.
2. Find the grave 26 A near the footpath.
3. The row then goes 26A to 26Z, then 26A1 to 26Z1, then 26 A2 to 26 Z2, then 26 A3 up to 26 B3.
Wish I'd known this on first attempt!
