According to the National Probate Calendar, Eugene lived at no 135 Rudwalon Street China. He died at Douglas House Sanitorium Southbourne Hampshire.


I was contacted by Major (retired) Mike J Humme MBE and he gave me the following information about Sgt Nirke, the only Jewish burial in the cemetery.



Sgt NIRKE was born on 15 October 1914 and joined the Gloucestershire Regiment in Burma on 28 November 1941. He enlisted in Mingaladon Yangon (Burma), his nationality not given. His Next of Kin is listed as his father Jacob, who lived in Shanghai (China). He served with the 1 Glosters  in Burma from 28 November 1941 to 31 May 1942 during the Japanese invasion. He may have been injured or fell ill as he was posted to the X List as temporarily unfit for service. After two years in India he ceased to be war posted on 6 October 1944 and transferred to the Intelligence Corps India Pool in the rank of Corporal. After his promotion to Sergeant in April 1945 he served with 358 Field Security Section in Ceylon-Malaya from 14 April 1946 and then 613 Field Security Section in Bombay  from 29 May 1946. His health did not improve and on 28 September 1946 he was X2 listed (Unfit for overseas service??), Y listed on 1st of January 1947 and Y8 (unfit for service??) listed on 28 May 1947. He was naturalised British on the 2nd of October 1947.


Sgt NIRKE was now seriously ill and died, still serving in the rank of Paid/Acting/Staff Sergeant, of Tubercular Meningitis and Pulmonary Tuberculosis in the Douglas House Sanatorium in Southbourne, Hampshire on 22 February 1950. He was of the Jewish faith and buried on 24 February 1950 in the Jewish plot of the Netley Military Cemetery (Grave 450). His Next of Kin (Father) could  not be informed of his death as he could not be traced at his Shanghai address. His father was finally traced and informed in Haifa in August 1950 and Sgt NIRKE’s personal effects returned to him. Sgt NIRKE was the holder of the Burma Star and the War Medal 1939-1945.
