Can you help?

It is my aim to try and publish a book on the allied soldiers who are missing in action in the Arnhem-Oosterbeek area since September 1944. I am planning to gather as much information as possible, including a photograph of the person in question.
In short, it will be a Roll of Honour (RoH) for those who have no known grave.

The CWG site says 
Son of Mr. and Mrs. G. Salford, of Lichfield, Staffordshire; husband of E. M. Salford, of Pontypool, Monmouthshire.

I wonder if you might be able to help me out to trace any information/ documentation/ photographs/ relatives of this soldier.

Thank you, in advance for your help and time.

Met vriendelijke groet-With kindest regards,
