Sgt 1785 Albert Edward Hall
« on: December 11, 2019, 08:23:29 AM »
Albert enlisted on 14/7/1913 (SWB Roll).  He served in 6th Bttn Manchester Regiment and doesn’t appear to have served overseas (No Service Medal Roll or MIC). He was discharged with Sickness on 8/11/1915 (SWB Roll) and received a Pension for Pulmonary TB, noted as 25% aggravated by his service (Pension Card).  Albert died from Pulmonary TB on 17/4/1920, aged 32.  His widow Rebecca didn’t receive a Pension (Pension Card) because they had married 23/12/1916 (St Mary, Hulme) – after his discharge.  The couple had three children.   78 Radnor St, Hulme
Photos and detailed family tree available.
As Albert died from a condition confirmed as attributable to his service, it would appear he should be commemorated by CWGC.  He was buried in Manchester Southern Cemetery Plot 369.S on 21/4/1920.
I have requested IFCP look at this case and ordered the DC to confirm cause of death..

We need to see if there is a headstone on Albert Hall's grave in Southern Cemetery and review the condition of any inscription.  I have contact with family members.
Edit
No Headstone found.
