Trying to find info on where a casualty might be buried. This is for a Family member who is dying. This was his brother and he asked me for help.
Any info or search engines would be greatly appreciated.



info:
    Sergeant Clifford N. (Normand) Greenwood
    A.S. No. 34023533
Papers received stated:
    He died in the service of his country "In the European Area December          
    30, 1944
He received a Purple Heart & the paper said that id was "Given the 21st day of February 1945.
Now, from what Paul's family was told by the military was that he along with many others were killed when due to bad weather (fog) our planes uncertain of their position when they dropped their bombs hit our men.  There were two lines of men on their way to the mess tent and everyone in the left line died.
Spell?  Paul believes that he is buried at Henri Chappell in Belgium.

Any help you & others might be able to give Paul & I would be forever grateful.

TIA,
Delmarksman
