Good Afternoon

This man is recorded as a fatality on the Roll of Honour for Great Victoria Street Presbyterian Church, Belfast

However, I cannot find an entry on CWGC, SDGW or IMR :(

The RoH gives his address as 32 Madrid Street, Belfast and the only Frederick William Moore on the 1911 Ireland Census was an English-born Cabinet Maker (26) living at 70 Westbourne Street.

Can anyone confirm this man as a fatality or provide any information on him.

Thanks

Nigel

Is he definitely shown with those Christian Names?

Now whether he's your man, I can't tell, but I wouldn't have thought there would be too many Belfast men in the Royal Fusiliers (Irish, Inniskilling, yes, but London?

However the Church ought to have known his correct names, just a hope that someone "guessed" the most likely Christian Names from initials......

I can only find two Belfast births both for William Frederick Moore, not the other way round as you have.

Don't think I can find any better candidate......

Hope it's of some help, even if it's just to rule him out......

Thanks, I had spotted Francis Wright Moore but the Church RoH records "Frdk Wm" (or similar contraction) ... I suppose this could be the correct man.

I had wondered whether the English-born Federick William Moore (Westbourne Street) may have returned to England to join up.

BTW, there are 30 men on my Belfast Presbyterians list who are recorded as serving with Royal Fusiliers!
