I noticed this piece in a 1916 edition of the People's Journal (Perth & Stirling Edtn.)

FAMILIES' SACRIFICE

FATHER AND FIVE BROTHERS DIE FOR COUNTRY

Corporal Parish, of the Queen's Regiment, attached the 8th Lancashire Fusiliers, has sustained severe losses in this war, having lost his father and five brothers. One of the brothers was killed in the retreat from Mons, another at Dixmude, two at Ypres, his father at Neuve Chapelle, and another brother also at Neuve Chapelle, after suffering from wounds. Corporal Parish has also a sister serving at the front as a captain in the Salvation Army. All the men served in the Queen's Regimnent, joining at the age of 14. Corporal Parish's two grandfathers were also members of the same regiment. The family's record has been brought to the attention of the King.

I had a brief look at CWGC but no connections were immediately apparent.
