I think my cousin found my Great Uncles name on a memorial.She stopped to have a look at a memorial at the cemetary on Rochdale road.And there were two John Burkes from the Manchesters,As there were only three John Burkes and one is on the Basra memorial in Iraq.I,m quietly confident that he must me one of the ones on there.
