Many thanks for your informative post. Such details explain a lot and such sad that he lost his life at 18 as did many others who rushed to sign up to serve their country. Iíve got online access to the regiments war diaries and trying to work out when he suffered his fatal injuries.. thank you to everyone who posted..

Good afternoon,

Just for your interest I have since found this. A complete list of Bolton war memorials which includes all the little known ones in churches, schools, halls and many other places. Quite an extensive list even for a place the size of Bolton. Some of course will only have a few names and many of thise will be repeated on the main memorials.


Yes, I visited the archives today and many memorials scattered about the town. Thanks once again for your assistance..

Good evening,

A little research shows that Farnworth does not have it's own war memorial, or not one that's listed anyway. There are several war memorials in Bolton, I have looked at two and he is not on them, Bolton Boys and Smithills Hall Chapel.

The most likely place will require a visit. The main Bolton war memorial is outside of the town hall but has no names inscribed on it. Instead they are recorded on the Bolton Roll of Honour which is kept in the town hall.


Added; After searching further I have found an online version of the roll of honour. Your man should be on page 55 but isn't. However if you put his name in the search box there he is. It may be that he is listed in an addendum somewhere.
He is listed as 5th batt Loyal North Regt so should be on their memorial in Bolton. I couldn't find a close up of the names on there.

Thanks for your efforts. I have made some progress this morning and discovered that Herbert was added to the war memorial in Farnworth after the original nameplates were stolen a few years ago!.. a visit to the local archives has resulted in a copy of his enlistment with the Kings Liverpool regiment but no report on his death. I am told that some parents refused to allow the publication of their loved ones deaths. This has resulted in Herbert being omitted from a book ĎFallen in the Fightí written about soldiers from Farnworth & Kearsley who lost their lives in the Great War. This book was compiled from newspaper reports hence the omission. I visited the local archives and was told his service records perished.. hopefully I can track down the war diaries of his regiment for the day he died on 29 August 1918. Many thanks

Thank you so far for all  the information and yes he could have served in both regiments. I still need to find him on a memorial or somehow confirm he isnít on one. A local book was published listing all the fallen soldiers in WW1 from the Farnworth & Kearsley area and he isnít listed!..

Hi, there. Iíve started on a quest to find out where, if at all my great uncle is listed on any memorial in his home town of Farnworth, Bolton. There is great confusion as on one website in Bolton his details are listed as follows:- Fox, Herbert-
Son of Edward Ernest and Margaret Fox, of 18, Clelland Street, Farnworth, Bolton, Lancashire. Enlisted under-age October
1915, 5th Bn., Loyal North Lancashire Regiment.. yet on the CWGC his details are as follows :-

Service Number: 105303
ē Regiment & Unit/Ship
The King's (Liverpool Regiment)
1st Bn.
a Date of Death
Died 29 August 1918
Age 18 years old
ē Buried or commemorated at
Country of Service
United Kingdom
Additional Info
Son of Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Fox, of Farnworth, Bolton, Lancashire.

Iím wondering if someone could please help and search the WW1 service records to confirm which regiment he served with. Iíve attached his photo and Iím convinced the cap badge is that of the Loyal North Regiment.. He isnít listed on the memorial in Bolton of the Loyal North Regiment nor does he feature on the Liverpool regiment memorial.. so confused and would be very grateful for your assistance in order that Herbert can be remembered.. Many thanks in advance..
