A lovely picture and very appropriate for this remembrance weekend.
Thanks to David Long who does a wonderful job in tracing the
lost heroes of Ince & elsewhere from both world wars

Lovely to find pictures of WW1 memorial listing my Great Uncle George Eardley (I have his war medal). He was born 1891 son of John Eardley and Margaret (nee Holcroft)of Warrington Road. Unfortunately they both died in 1919 so would not have seen it.
Message for S Eardley: George is also my great uncle (my mother was an Eardley) and I have been trying to find out about George for some years. I know where he is buried but I thought his medal had been lost over the years. I have a copy of the war diary from the day he died. It would be really helpful if we could arrange to meet. Craig
