If any details are wrong Karen you can contact the Commonwealth War Graves commission and have it corrected. I did this for one of my family some years ago.
This is an excellent site for anything to do with the Birmingham Air Raids. https://www.birminghamairraids.co.uk/

Karen,

Using the second of Wendy's links, you should be able to find an image of your grandfather's headstone. It says TIBBETS. And also gives a date of 26th December 1940. It is a standard CWGC headstone. I can't reproduce it here as I don't have the owner's permission. But do a search there on Tibbets, if you can't find it.

The 1940 date seems to be confirmed by another post which says that a record of the death was made in early 1941. A mention is made of his age as well - 42.
