« on: December 14, 2019, 12:00:37 PM »
George had been a former member of the Manchester Territorials when he re-enlisted in the 19th Bttn in 1915.  He was transferred to 1st Garrison Battalion and served in India from 25/9/1914 (MIC) & Singapore, receiving a BWM.
George was transferred to Reserve on 3/5/1919 (SR) and received a Pension for Pulmonary TB 100% attributable to his service(PIC). He died from Pulmonary TB on 12/12/1920 (PIC), aged 43 and his widow Edith received Widows Pension.  16 Garden Walk, Ardwick.  The couple has two daughters.
His death was registered in Chorlton Volume 8c Page 842.  He is buried in Manchester Southern Cemetery, Consecrated Grave 1710 /11 on 18/12/1920.
I’ll check with IFCP before I seek the DC.

DC attached showing cause of death as TB that had been attributed to service.  IFCP will deal with the application for commemoration.
The DC confirms the details we had and notes George's occupation as Out-door Labourer and Army Pensioner.

It's likely George Conduit has a headstone at Southern Cemetery.  We need to confirm and check the inscription.
Edit
No Headstone found.

George Conduit's commemotation was approved by CWGC today. He now has an entry in UKBOR, pending acceptance of his burial at Southern Cemetery, where a new headstone should be erected.
