Using the Coordinates Translator program I plugged in the 6 digit number given for Price and Phillips ( 723230) The Translator program translates that number to a modern map. Two images are attached showing the location on a modern map in the village of Ysslesteyn. If you have any questions please let me know.
According to what i found out using old british map cards I came to nearly the same result as you did eventhough an other source mentioned that they died in the neighbourhoud of the city of Deurne and beause there is mentioned that they had their field grave in Ysselsteyn (which you found) it indicates the place of the fieldgrave near the church grave yard there. where you can find a sign with their names (see picture) Which says in remembrance of the allied soldiers wo died in WW 2 in Ysselsteyn for our freedom.
For me to be in the position to have the position to determine myself according to road maps Uk en British soldiers used in that aria, i am seeking aswell those headmap, and perhaps sheet maps of the quadrant where they fought.
Eventhough many many thx Cheers John
