I am looking for any information about James Law from Hulme who was in the Manchester Regiment in 1901.  He was born in 1880 but I can't find any information about his military service.

Just looked on the 1901 and found this man with his family Chester road he is down as Brother and his occupation as Soldier.
Can i ask how you know he was in the Manchester regiment? Or is this just a geuss as the barracks were just down the road?
