Title: St. Anns Square Memorial - Manchester
Post by: Jonathan_NW on November 20, 2008, 08:05:51 PM
Hi all

Does any member of the forum happen to have photos of this monument available? Especially the names inscribed upon it? I would be so very grateful to anybody who could share them with me.

Regards

Jonathan.

Thanks Timberman but I have already had a look on there and it isn't on this otherwise excellent website. I just don't get the chance to travel into Manchester and I know my Great Uncle's name is on there!

The link to Great Manchester is not an active link unfortunately. There are lots of Memorial sites. Our very own Capt Bonner has listing on the Museum site but not for St Anne's Square.

Thank you so much for the kind offer. I would be delighted to see the pics. Would you be kind enough to take pictures of the lists of names as well please?

Thanks
