I've found this in my file, which may be of use on here?: -

In Memory of A E Herrin, Private 41930 7th Bn., Leicestershire Regiment who died on Saturday, 2nd November 1918, age 19.

Son of Albert and Eliza Ann Herrin of 5, Hill Street, Quarry Bank, Brierley Hill, Staffordshire.

Commemorative Information: -

Cemetery: TOURNAI COMMUNAL CEMETERY ALLIED EXTENSION, Tournai, Hainault, Belgium

Grave Reference/Panel number Location: Tournai Communal Cemetery is located in the south west district of Tournai itself on the N508, Chaussee De Douai, a road leading from the R52 Tournai ring road. 900 metres after leaving the R523 and joining the N508, lies the left hand turning onto the Chaussee De Willemean. The cemetery is located at the end of this lane.

Historical Information: Tournai (Doornik in Flemish), was captured by the German II Corps on the 23rd August, 1914, in spite of the resistance of a French Territorial Brigade, and it remained in German hands until it was entered by the 47th (London) and 74th (Yeomanry) Divisions on the 8th November, 1918. The 51st (or Highland) Casualty Clearing Station came in on the 14th November and remained until the 20th July, 1919. The (Southern) Communal Cemetery, in the Faubourg-St. Martin, was used and extended by the Germans during their occupation. (German sick and wounded were nursed in the "Aslle", the British and Allied in the Hospital Notre-Dame.) The earlier German War burials were made in the North corner, the later in the extension to the South-West, and the British burials after the Armistice in the same extension. It was decided later to regroup the German and Allied dead, by nationalities; and part of the German Extension then became the Allied (or Western) Extension. There were brought to it not only British and many Allied dead from the North corner of the cemetery, but also British dead from other cemeteries in a wide area round Tournai. There are now nearly 700, 1914-18 and over 50, 1939-45 war casualities commemorated in this site. Of these, over 30 from the 1914-18 War are unidentified. The cemetery covers an area of 3,233 square metres.
