    My Grandfather was a Corporal with the 3rd Loyal North Lancashire Reg: He was also at Felixstowe Nov 1917 when my Mother was born there. However I cannot find any info about him. Can anyone help?

  2. Vivien says:

    Hi Paul,

    He was called Richard Berry. About 21 years old at the time,

      Hi again, do you happen to know his service number or any other details that will help narrow it down? There were a few men with that name, but haven’t found any that made it to Corporal. Regards, Paul

  3. Vivien says:

    Thanks for reply Paul. More details: he was wounded in leg or lower back as he had a limp for the rest of his life. I am pretty sure that he had a pension from the Army regarding the wound but I do not know where he was wounded in France. He was the youngest of several brothers who also went to War. Herbert Berry was killed, he was one or two years older than Dick, as he was known. Dick also had an elder brother name John, he did not die.Maybe he fibbed about being Corporal!? He married in 29th Oct 1916, he was then just put as a soldier. When my Mother was born Nov 1917 he is put on the birth cert: as Corporal. I have just looked again and on this cert:it does look as though it is the 3rd Loyal North Lancashire Regiment! Is any of this helpful?

    Grave in our local cemetery (St John’s Wingates, Westhoughton, Lancs)…36843 Private H (Herbert) Beresford, Loyal North Lancs Regt., 23rd May 1917 age 29.

    He was in the 3rd Battalion and died at home. I note that they were at Felixstowe at that time…any info would be much appreciated.
    We are to stage an exhibition for our Westhoughton War Memorial names of the fallen in the Great War – Pte Beresford is not on our cenotaph, but I would like to include him in the exhibition.
    Best Regards for all the work you do.
