Hi MH

Re Owen William Parry that you have on the Alderley Edge memorial. Everything that I have points to that particular Owen Parry being linked to Bangor, Caernarfonshire including a book written shortly after the War. I note that when you have a doubt you state 'unable to find correct etc' Do you have anything about him and Alderley Edge that I may update my file? I'll send you what I have if you want.

(The canadian casualty has links to Cheshire albeit the bit that is now the Wirral)
