John Benjamin George's Story

Second Lieutenant John Benjamin George Elliott served with the 4th and 8th London Regiments (No 932). He died on 16th August 1917 during the second battle of Ypres. He has no grave but his name appears on the Menin Gate. He must have been a good friend of my grandfather Herbert Edward Jackman who kept his photograph. I have it now. I wonder if he has any descendants or other family still living? I would like him to be remembered.
