Pte 1178 Martin Dooley
Pte Dooley had been a Labourer when he enlisted and embodied in the 8th Bttn National Reserve on 25/1/1915.  Martin had previously served in the Lancs Artillery Militia. 56 Cawdor St, Hulme.
Discharged unfit from No 5 Supernumerary Coy of 8th Bttn at Roa Island, Cavendish Dock, Barrow in Furness, on 15/5/1915, Martin had Chronic Pulmonary TB aggravated by active service.
Martin died from Phthisis contracted on active service on 2/11/1915.

Widow Julia received a pension at 17 East Ave, Oxford, Warrington. It seems the pension was terminated in 1921 due to lack of verification of Martin’s pre-war earnings.

Martin Dooley's inscription on the communal headstone of a public grave has been lost, as a tree had broken off most to the names on the headstone after growing over it.  An alternative commemoration is required.
