Looking for Charles Pearson Neave b24/12/1899 died according to the link below 31/05/1943

As you will see it says Hayborough.
However, Angus council thought it meant Market Hayborough (Harborough)
If anyone can shed any light on this matter it would be gratefully appreciated
We would like to know what happened to him and to get a copy of a death cert - there are no family alive now from that period
thanks for any help
