Best place to find infomation 1 month 2 weeks ago #74395

Good Afternoon I am a new member of the site looking to try and find information about a soldier buried in a cemetery I look after as part of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission EOHO project. The headstone is a facsimile stone placed by the family as it is not listed as a CWGC memorials, I believe from research he was involved in the Boer War. I am trying to find out details of his service to add to the information I currently have about his service in WW1, any help would be greatly appreciated. The details I have are below.
