I managed to locate Kopkow in the German Telephone directory in the early 1990s but unfortunately did not take the opportunity to write to him. If memory serves, he was listed as Horst Kopkow-Codes (or something similar - possibly he added his wife's name to his own post-war like Richard Schulze-Kossens). This may help in tracing his grave/further details.
