Brownedge St Mary's

St Mary's memorial does not contain a list of those who served.  In relation to the number of fallen, I estimate that some 450 Roman Catholic men from Brownedge served. A list was published in the Preston Herald in February 1915 of the men who had enlisted up to that date, so their names are transcribed here (my thanks to Janet Davis who gave me the copy of the newspaper article). 


I have added other names as I have come across them in my research.

If you have other names you wish to see added to the list, please get in touch via the Contact page.
