LONGTON CENOTAPH [part one]

On the memorial it gives Surname, Initials and Regiment/Units. Some have been found to be incorrect, same person doubled up, or not listed with the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. I do except that some may be post WW2.

With the information supplied on the memorial I have tried to be accurate. Any help would be appreciated

The 1914 – 1918 War
