Continuing my research into those men who died in the Great War and are recorded at Our Lady's RC Church in Latchford, Warrington, I am now seeking any information at all on the following men, inc SDGW lookups. I have no further information at all, just the names.

Lance-Corporal Edmund Hinde

Private Francis Holigan

Private Patrick Ralph

Private Thomas Ford

Lance-Corporal Joseph Dunn

Grateful for anything supplied, no matter how small.

Hi

Lance Corporal was an appointment therefore his rank will be shown as Private so it looks like you do have the right man
