BAMBER BRIDGE IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR
Bamber Bridge has no single War Memorial for those who died in the First World War, but rather separate, denominational, memorials and rolls of honour.
This site is intended to provide information about all Bamber Bridge servicemen together in one place.
I am enormously grateful to the following people for their help and encouragement in this and other projects:
Dr David Hunt, curator of South Ribble Museum and Exhibition Centre and font of all knowledge Brig-related.
Charlie O’Donnell, author of the South Ribble in the Great War website.
Paul McCormick, author of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment website, and Janet Davis with help tracing L.N.LAN.R. men and sorting out some complicated family trees.
And the following individuals who provided insights or information: John Brown, Heather Crook, Raymund Livesey, Lucy Nickson, Jim Rawcliffe, Bill Wareing
I have two other sites that may be of interest:
Lostock Hall is a Lancashire village adjacent to Bamber Bridge.

I also have a website giving biographical and military details
of all the men with the Brierley surname who were killed in the
First World War. For information, click here.
