D.Maddox Liverpool connection?


Recommended Posts

Hi All

I have this man http://www.cwgc.org/search/casualty_detail...asualty=2000247

Found nothing for him on SDGW, trying to find out if he has a connection to Liverpool?

I am looking for a D. Maddox and he is the only listing on CWGC.

Any ideas where else i could try to find info on him please?

Thank you azureus

My man came from St Anthony.s parish in Liverpool. So it is him.

Great work, I dont know where you all find this info, but thank you

Ancestry is having problems with SDGW. Aldershot was not THAT violent a spot!

Using the surname Maddocks, all of the above info is correct, except that he was killed in action in France & Flanders.

Matching the number, etc., and using the surname maddox, rather than Maddocks, CWGC shows his name commemmorated on the Menin Gate. He thus has no known grave.

Hope this helps
