Olwyn, the Archives NZ site says it is presenting 'a selection' of nearly
700 forms. There were 845 deaths on 12 October alone
So it does not purport to be a complete list of Passchendaele deaths. You
would need to enquire of Archives NZ whether they have the form for Stanley
Vincent, and whether it can be made available.

Am I missing his name?
Why is he on the Albury War Memorial? Was he a farm hand up there?

He is sleeping his last long sleep
In a grave we may never see;
But may some gentle hand in that distant land Lay down a flower for me.
