WW1 Remembrance

Every year, as a congregation, we remember those men from Cregagh Presbyterian, who made the ‘supreme sacrifice’ in the two World Wars of the 20th Century.
Their names are read out at the Remembrance Day service, and I have always wondered who these men were and what their family circumstances were.
The Centenary anniversary of the start of World War One was one of the ‘triggers’ for the investigations which I subsequently undertook. The fact that I had just retired also meant that I had ‘some’ spare time to pursue associated information.
The following details relate to those members of Cregagh who died in WW1.
