Frederick TILBEY - WW I soldier

I am spokesman for a team of amateur-archaeologists, active in the area of Ypres (western part of Flanders, Belgium), searching for relics of the Great War. For the past 3 - 4 years we have been active on a forgotten battlefield in my village Boezinge (Boesinghe). Some days ago (mid December 2002) we found a spoon that must have belonged to a Frederick John TILBEY (with an -e-). He fought in the 32nd Brigade of the Royal Field Artillery, and apparently lost the item when he fought in my village (summer of 1915). Later he was killed in action on 27 April 1916 on a battlefield in the North of France, and buried at Bienvillers (near Arras, Pas de Calais).
He probably was born in 1895, and he was the son of John and Emily Tilbey, of 106, Lancefield St., Queen's Park, Paddington, London. He was born at either Harlington, or Harmondsworth, Yiewsley, Middx. Not married.
We would appreciate if possible relatives contacted us.
