Default George Slater

I was at the National Archives (LDS London Family History Centre) yesterday browsing the Shilbottle parish register as you do when I came across an entry for George Slater, a WW1 death on Shilbottle war memorial.

Now I've transcribed the date of death as 1915 but I notice CWG has 1916 and apparently they are saying because they can't identify a grave at Shilbottle they will be placing a headstone there. Anyway:

October 7 1915 (1916?): George Slater, Shilbottle driver (A56, burial plot?), aged 25. Died in Graylingwell War Hospital, Chichester after active service in France. (Army Service Corps, died 3 October)
