Remembered Today:

Pte 3253 Joseph Taylor 1/5th West Yorks

Has anyone come across the above in any of their research? Joseph was killed on 3/9/1916 and is buried in Connaught Cemetery. We have reason to believe that this is really our ancestor Joseph Greenhow, and for whatever reason he changed his name.

Joseph Taylor is recorded on the CWGC roll etc but no trace of Joseph Greenhow exists. All the details tally except we are unable to get a next of kin for Joseph Taylor to confirm.

Does anyone have any photos of the 1/5th battallion or any other information regarding dates, enlistment details? He enlisted in York, although originally from Appleby in Westmoreland. Our Joseph Greenhow was near Catterick on the 1901 census, so not that far from York.

By posting on other sites we were able to get the above information but we'd like to find out more.

Hello M&MG

Welcome to the forum.

What leads you to believe that Joseph Taylor is in fact Joseph Greenhow?
