Do you have an image for Pte 2409 Matthew  Mulhern 1st Manchester Reg died 8th March 1916 who is commemorated on the memorial in St Chad's RC Church Cheetham?  According to CWGC should be Panel 31 and 64.

Thank you

Bob,

Would it be at all possible to have a photograph of the commemoration to William Ormerod (6th East Lancs) on Panel 19 of the Basra Memorial?

If so, would it also be possible to use this on the page commemorating William on the Ormerod Family Website (Ormerod.uk.net) - citing you as the source?

Many thanks,

Paul
