Dear Chanel
There's a London music book publisher called RoganHouse.
Drop an email to them - the girl there knows the story.
All the best

I am trying to find the grave of WW1 soldier Peter Archibald who died on 27 Sept 1916 in Huddersfield after service with 12th Royal Fusiliers. No trace found of Huddersfield burial. However, the 1911 Census shows an Archibald family, including a Peter Archibald, at 92 St Oswald's Grove, Rochdale Road, Manchester. Does this ring a bell with anybody?

This research is being done on behalf of the In From the Cold Project.

Thank you, ShaunJ. No trace of him in Manchester City Council burial records. Any suggestions for Church graveyards in the St Oswald's Grove vicinity?

I wonder if the family were Catholic?
I was going to suggest Moston Cemetery but he is not mentioned on CWGC site for there  :-\

Sorry, I can’t get ‘shrink link’ to work.

Thanks, Heywood. I have no info. on religion but I think the family may indeed well have been Catholic. Not currently listed by CWGC as a War Grave - for whatever reason. I will make direct contact with St Joseph's. In the meantime, all other suggestions will be gratefully received.

CWGC shows him listed on the Brookwood Memorial but no other details.
