An A-Z of WW1 soldiers associated with the Bewsey area of Warrington, whose names do not appear on any known War memorial. For men whose names do appear on a memorial, see the associated pages for each individual memorial.  compiled by Barbara Goerner.

The Great War Records were damaged during World War Two so incomplete. With just the bare minimum of information I have tried to identify those soldiers who were associated with Bewsey. For the sake of this project I have included St Ann’s Parish, which is on the border of the area I was looking at. The men were either born, lived, were schooled, worshipped or worked in the area. My main source of reference was all categories of Ancestry.co.uk; other sources I have listed below each soldier. In some cases, where more than one soldier share very similar details,  it has been difficult to identify the specific man associated with Bewsey, in these cases I have included each set of potential details. Where I am uncertain I have put question mark.

The information may help in tracing your family during a time of great conflict. I hope the information is correct and if you are reading it and have any information which will help I would like to hear from you. I would like to thank the staff of Warrington Library and Museum for their patience and help with my research.

The Great War Records were damaged during World War Two so incomplete.

With just the bare minimum of information I have tried to identify these soldiers who were assosciated with Bewsey and I have also included St Ann`s Parish.

For example born, lived, schooled, worshipped or worked in the area.

My main source of reference was all categories of Ancestry.co.uk others I have listed below each soldier. There is some where I have been unable to identify one man, so put the information of both of them. Others there are too many of similar names to choose from. Where I am uncertain I have put question mark.

The information may help in tracing your family during a time of great conflict

I hope the information is correct and if you are reading it and have any information which will help I would like to hear from you.
