The following appeared in Blackburn Times 14 Jul 1917

Lance-corporal Harry Ormerod, of the Lewis Gun Section of the East Lancashire Regiment, was killed in action in France on June 25th. He was the eldest son of Mr and Mrs H A Ormerod, of 31 Hartley Street, and was 23 years of age and married. Formerly a cloth-looker at Hollins Bank Mill, he joined the local Territorials in August, 1915, and was drafted out to Egypt very soon afterward. In the early part of the present year the regiment moved to France. His name is on the Roll of Honour for St Mary’s RC Church.


There was an image of Harry, the quality is not that good as it was taken from a microfilmed copy of the newspaper
