I have a copy of the St Pauls Catherdral service for Railwaymen, it lists all all 18,000 + who were KIA, died of wounds etc.

It is listed by railway companies and gives thier railway occupation before joining up.

I will willing look up any requests

Malcolm,

I'd be grateful if you could look up the following men for me, all employed by the Furness Railway. I already know their regiments (from the memorial) but have never been able to identify them so if there are any additional details it would be really useful.

J. Dawson (East Lancashire Regiment)

R. Walker (Manchester Regiment)

Best wishes.

Andy.

HELLO ANYONE THERE

No need to shout. I was having a nice doze before you woke me up.

You'll find it's this book available from Naval & Military Press at £23.38. (Later addition.....the link isnt holding to the page but to N & M's search page....you should still find the book if you search on "railwaymen")

Found it via a Google for you. But it also led me to a brand new copy at Abebooks for a fiver. That's winging its way to my door as we speak, :)

The durability of the Yellow Pages advert never ceases to amaze me. It was made in 1983.

And it's still about once a month that someone, such as yourself, comes across my name and inital and makes some reference to it. Laugh? I nearly pissed myself.

Stewart ,

James Petrie is shown as a porter for the Caledonian Railway, there is also listed a C Petrie for the same company - a brakesman.

No trace of either Denholm or Fraser in the Caledonian Railway.

Chris,

Sorry, not listed under Great Eastern. This book is divided into 65 railway companies, some very very small. Is it possible he worked for one of those?

Please could you look up either J or T Benson and M or E Beck for me, both of the Furness Railway (not sure of the first initials)

Coldstreamer,

The only Ward listed for the Great Eastern is a A.S. Ward whose occupation is a clerk.

The GE memorial is at Liverpool St Station, if you ever go that way.
