I've asked Terry Denham too. Just wonder if the Cologne Memorial is more suitable for commemoration as Taylor apperently died in Germany rather than France.

Thats all I could find as well, as you will have seen there is no mention of his death on either of them.

The CWGC doesn‘t seem to have a hard and fast rule, sometimes death is recorded as period between x and y, sometimes the first date of the period is used sometimes the last date.

Hi Charlie,
Thanks for clarifying Schofield.  Well spotted.
Taylor's service record says he should be @ 30 so the DOB is Nov 1887 rather than 1897. Then again NOK is noted as his sister rather than wife, Clara, so it may be confused with another man.  What's strange is the ref to 13 East Street / Road, Longsight; so I think it must be the same man.
I'm not sure how CWGC work here. Should the last know date he was noted as alive become the date of death?
Notes as PA 25202 & 26333.  (Are there more?) Index image attached.

Well done Bob. He looks very smart and it is interesting to note the Fleur-de-Lys capbadge.

Hi Tim
Thanks once again, when I can access my desktop PC I‘ll do an update.

There are two Schofields whose records have been mixed up by the ICRC. Henry and Herbert have been, probably unknowingly, combined. Herbert 376558 12th Bn is buried at Condé
https://www.cwgc.org/find-records/find-war-dead/casualty-details/578129/H%20SCHOFIELD/

There isn‘t any „true“ record of Henry 27251 17th Bn in the ICRC records.

Taylor‘s death isn‘t recorded, as far as I can tell, by the ICRC.

Pte 31214 William Taylor
Another case of a man assumed dead who actually died as a POW.  If the date of death can be found we may be able to amend with CWGC.
TAYLOR   WILLIAM 30 22/03/1918 Private   Manchester Regiment 17th Bn. United Kingdom   '31214' France   POZIERES MEMORIAL. Husband of Clara Taylor (two children) of 13 East Rd, Longsight. (Later resident in France) Photographer attested 11/12/1915. Mobilised 26th Bn 29/02/1916. France 16/07/1916. Posted to 19th Bn from IBD 30/07/1916. Wounded 19/10/1916. Sick Jan 1918.

Pte 27251 Henry Schofield
The Red Cross records indicate Henry served with 12th Bn and died in POW Hosp 30/07/1918.
All other records show Henry as 17th Bn and I wonder if we may find his grave at Conche (with an acute).
Here's what I have
SCHOFIELD HENRY 24 22/03/1918 Private Manchester Regiment   17th Bn. United Kingdom '27251' France   POZIERES MEMORIAL. Son of George (Deceased) & Susannah Schofield of 405 Rochdale Road, Royton. Attested 11/12/1915. Mobilised 25th Bn 22/01/1916. France 22/07/1916 as 18th Bn.  Posted from IBD to 19th Bn 30/07/1916. GSW Arm and face 22/06/1917. Rejoined Bn 29/08/1917.  Posted sick again. Transferred to 17th Bn 06/02/1918. Missing XII Pln, C Coy, presumed dead.

1914 - 1918 / Re: Harry Brindley MM 44694

Very late to this thread, but thouht I should add some details.
Harry's Effects were left to his sister Ellen (Nellie), who also received a Dependent's Pension at 262 Uttoxoter St, Longton, Staffs. (Wonder if Nellie is Stokelass' Granny)
Harry had trained with 6th R Fusils at Dover before posting overseas with 9th New Army Bn.  At some stage he was wounded or sick and transferred to 19th Manchesters after recovery, guestimated as summer 1916.  He will have been transferred to 17th Bttn on 06/02/1918, when 19th Bttn was disbanded.
