Albert Garner lived in Arcola Street Hackney E8 with his parents who ran a local Grocery store. He is buried in Mierlo War Cemetery South of the Netherlands. The cemetery was started in the spring of 1945 when graves were brought in from the surrounding district, most of them being casualties of September-November 1944. At that time the main fighting was concerned with clearing the region south and west of the Maas and with opening up the Scheldt estuary further west. Helmond itself was occupied on 25 September, 1944.
