ANTHONY CROLLA
« on: Monday 10 June 19 17:30 BST (UK) »
Trying to find grave of Pte ANTHONY CROLLA, 9th Batt. King's Regt (Liverpool) who died on 11 April 1940. Very little info to hand at present. May have had Manchester connection. Any suggestions?

According to the Death indexes, he died in Melton Mowbray District, Leicestershire.  Maybe he's buried there and memorialised in Brookwood?

Edited to say: Oh dear.  Seems he took his own life. :(

According to the article in the Grantham Journal on 19th April 1940, he was the son of Alice Crolla of Moston, Manchester.

Alice Mackarell married Joseph Crolla Q4 1912 in Manchester.

Leaving out the sad section - "Alice Crolla said her son was normally 'a quite sort of lad' and had never complained about Army life. He had never threatened to take his life, and when he left her he seemed perfectly happy and normal."
