Recommended Posts

Pte Thomas Jordan #52076 King's Liverpool CWGC

I'm trying to bulk up this chaps bio, according to sdgw he was born and resided in Castlereagh and enlisted in Liverpool.

S/E gives siblings Joseph, Bridget Shirley, Andrew, William, Annie Morgan, and Mary(?).

He's listed on the National Roll of Honour for Ireland

Can anybody he pick him up in Castlereagh please ?

many thanks

The Electoral Rolls 1918 show a Mr and Mrs Weaver living there, and Kate O'Brien (may be his sister Kate)
