Sgt. Schramm, som blev fundet da flyvraget blev taget bort, blev begravet på Svinø 30/4 1944. (Kilder: FAF og AOD)
I 1948 blev han og andre Amerikanske flyvere fra Svinø flyttet til
Ardennes American Cemetery i Belgien. (Kilde: FAF)
Hans navn er ikke i registret hos ABMC, så mest sandsynligt blev han begravet på en privat kirkegård i USA. Se Monument for 46 amerikanske flyvere.

De andre 6 medlemmer af besætningen overlevede.

På Venslev Kirkegård blev der 2/9 1945 rejst en mindesten for de faldne, som er begravet på Svinø Kirkegård.

together with Sgt. Stilles and Sgt. Cisek.
Sgt. Schramm, who was found when the wreck of the plane was taken away, was buried at Svinø on 30 April, 1944. (Sources: FAF and AOD)
In 1948 he and other American airmen from Svinø were taken to
Ardennes American Cemetery in BELGIUM. (Source: FAF)
His name is not in the
ABMC records, so most likely he was buried in a private cemetery in the U.S.A. See Monument to 46 American airmen.

The other 6 members of the crew survived.

A memorial stone commemorating the fallen, who are buried in Svinø Churchyard, was erected on Venslev Churchyard on 2 September 1945.
See Venslev.dk with a story about the plane and a personal account by Ejvind Friis - in Danish but with a map and photos.
