The CWGC site only gives his initials, his first names and the fact that he "died of wounds" was obtained from the "Roll of Honour - Sussex - Newhaven" website , which shows :

Attached is a photograph of his headstone in Newhaven cemetery which I took a couple of months ago. The inscription is a bit weather worn and is starting to fade.
