Hi Joyce.

Do you have his Service Number? There are four Joseph Mellors in the King's Liverpool Regt on Ancestry's MIC index, plus one J. Mellor & one Joseph H. Mellor.

Welcome Joyce to the forum unfortunately I can add little to Simon Wilkinson's reply as he says too many medal cards for Joseph Mellor's who joined Kings Liverpool.

His birth details appear to be Joseph Rathbone Mellor born second quarter 1894 in Lancashire volume 8b page 480 do you have his birth certificate already? The details might help to identify him as there appear to be at least one pension record on

Ancestry for one of the four Mellor's already mentioned.

Did he survive the war?

Any more detail such as his wife's name may help one of the experts identify him.

Hi Joyce


I also have Joseph Rathbone Mellor born 20 May 1894. Married Jane Latham 1914 and then married Mary Alice Armstrong in 1918. There is a newspaper cutting relating to him on BNA. He is showing as 7th Manchester Regiment on FMP.
