Default Lt. A. B. Lawrence 44 RTR

Dear All,
HELP!!!!!!
I'm normally pretty good at this, but I can't find a WW2 (1943) casualty, and I'm doubting my sanity.
I'm trying to find a 44 RTR officer who reportedly died in 1943, but I can't find him.
I have the following - DENNIS A. B. LAWRENCE DIED 19/07/1943.
Can anyone help - please?
Amy

Jon,
Very many thanks for that - much appreciated indeed.
I've fallen into the surname variation trap. He's actually LAWRANCE and not LAWRENCE. Schoolgirl error in my part.
Again, thank you so much Jon.
Amy
