Not sure if this has been suggested but it isn't a Church Memorial is it.

I have found quite a few that list their war dead on such memorials in Churchyards.

could this be a memorial in Collyhurst? I have checked out some of the names visible and many have an address in Collyhurst as their next of kin. :-\

The collyhurst memorial looks nothing like that, but may be worth a look to check the names

Hi Ken,

I am not familiar with the area but could there be an area overlapping?

As well as those you have listed :

H Ramsbottom of 125 Teignmouth Road Collyhurst.

T O'Sulliavn of 75 North Kent Street Collyhurst

H Ogden, 14 St Oswald St Collyhurst

Could be a churchyard as Josey suggested. These men were from different regiments so it makes it likely to have been in that area.

Hi

This has got exciting while I've been busy doing other things!  Idid try a few names, but apart from the Redmond one, I didn't get any addresses.

Collyhurst does have family connections.  I thought it looked like a park or churchyard or some such place.

Thank you all for your input!

Hi Ken, I've got higher resolution.  I had to reduce the res to put uit on the board, though I ended up with a smaller file than I needed.

The original was a much larger file, but I can send it on an emeil to anyone who'd like.  Someone had a problem opening it so I'kll see if an save it a better way.

Having said that, this is a scan of my photocopy of a very dark original.  I only have the photocopy, so it's doing quite well to show names. 

You may not get any more from the original scan, but if anyone would still like a copy, please can you pm me with an email address?  omeone else may make a better job of posting it than me!

Thank you again all.

Hi Emms

have checked the Collyhurst memorial which was recently refurbished but couldn't recognise any of the names there as being on your picture!

Got out my a-z and the surrounding areas are many, Harpurhey, Miles platting, Cheetham, Crumpsall, Ancoats and Strangeways.

Did find a John Paul Parry of Hulme, but he could have moved there when he married but be from Collyhurst. He died  1942 so the memorial may be to both war dead.

Hope you find out soon.
