The two men on the Right in the 2nd row from the back look like brothers-twins perhaps-which might identify them if you have a list

22439 Ashworth E and 22440 Ashworth L perhaps

They dont feature on CWGC but perhaps renumbered?

22440 Leonard Ashworth lived at 6 Halsbury Rd, Longsight with his mother Sarah Jane.He was discharged early but had medals and features on the Pension Records.He was only 13 in 1911 census[born 1897 on BMD] and so was 16 when he enlisted in Dec 1914 and not 19 as stated in Pensions.He was 5ft 2ins.He was in the 23rd Service battalion Manchester Reg

22439 Edward Ashworth was discharged through sickness and had no medal entitlement and nothing else about him to help identify him.
He is apparently not the brother of Leonard.On the 1901 census Leonard had a brother Charlie a year older but according to 1911 cenus Sarah jane had lost 4 children.I haven't checked deaths.He had another brother rather older-John Henry I think.There was also a 9 yearold brother.

So presumably this is not 'our' family.I am interested to know if anyone else sees the likeness!
