Request From St. Mary's

We have been contacted by Reverend Richard Lamey, Priest in Charge of St. Mary's Newton.  The request is for a bit of personal information concerning the men mentioned on the war memorial inside the church. We have been able to gleam information concerning their rank and number, and where they are buried from The Commonwealth War Grave Commission.   


If anyone has any personal memories of any of the people mentioned above, or knows which street they lived on, or school they went to, place of work and so on that information will be well appreciated.

Albert Gunning-his name is here but he actually made it home and found it rather amusing that his name was there!
