Most of the information above comes from Porter and Moss.
(and from my website:
http://euler.slu.edu/~bart/egyptianhtml/tombs/ThebanTombs.htm )

The tomb of Nebwenenef (159) is mentioned extensively in kitchen's Ramesside Inscriptions. kitchen gives translations of the inscriptions.

I'm not sure anyone is presently actively excavating these tombs.
But if so, others here may know about that.
