Margaret.
I've only just come across this item on the forum. We would probably be able to provide a permanent home for this plaque in the Regimental Museum where we already have several similar plaques of regimental interest.  I don't quite understand where the restaurant comes into the scene  but am happy to speak with the ecclesiastic authority over the ownership.

Perhaps you could send me some more detail.
Robert

Robert

The old Stock Exchange building was used as 'Stocks' restaurant for a long time, I assume that Gary Neville has now taken over the building and he has passed on the plaque to St Ann's Church when it was discovered

I will try to find out some contact details

I'm sure that you are right. The plaque originally was secured with brass cast Lancashire roses. According to the NWM Inventory website it was found in 2010 which is probably when they were removed.I asked the Church Verger and he was unaware of them. I have a picture which I'll try to e-mail to you as it won't upload here.

Hi Margaret,

I am Garry from Salford War Memorials, we have previously communicated by email.

I am sorry to see that you did not receive a more positive response from Mr Neville, but I am pleased to see that Robert has offered a good, and appropriate, home for the memorial. I hope this offer is extended to the WW2 memorials also?

Hi Garry,
It's looking positive about the future of the plaque. The restaurant may not be as suitable in the long run; it may change use, for
example. I managed to view the plaque a couple of weeks ago, and noticed the missing brass roses which was disappointing. I agree about the WW2 plaque which is also propped against the wall in the Church, and have mentioned it to Robert.
About half of the names have been recognised and it would be good to find more, and perhaps attach pictures. I'm so glad that all of you are there helping this happen.

There are 36 names shown on the photograph of the plaque. Of these 19 are Manchester Regiment, 10 being the 16th Bn.
9 are other regiments including 8 Lancashire regiments and 8 which I can't identify.  It certainly deserves a good permanent home.

Connecting the deaths as recorded on the memorial to the firms operating on the floor of the Manchester Stock Exchange, it is sad to see the effect of these deaths on the former partnerships.  One in particular stands out (as mentioned by Tim Bell).  That is the death of Captain Stanley Foster Jackson of the 1/6th Manchesters who is buried in Twelve Tree Copse. Cem., for he was in business on his own.   However, looking down the names of the firms existing in 1914, it is pleasing to note that some did survive the ravages of the Great War and were still operating on the Exchange Floor in the 1950's.
