Hi there!!
« on: August 08, 2023, 01:35:38 AM »
Hi My name is Sonia Graham I live in the U.S.. Both my parents, grandparentes etc  are from England. I am looking for any information I can find on both of my great Grandfathers. Pvt. Daniel Barrow #16990  12th Manchester Regiment (he died july 7th 1916) He left a widow and six children

I can't find anything on my other great grandfather Thomas Hacking born July 13th 1884 and died April 28th 1957.  I don't even know if he was in the Manchester Regiment just that both of them were from Oldham when they enlisted.
So glad I found this fourm thank you so much for accepting me!  ;D

Hi Sonia,
The War Diary will be an invaluable resource. Free to download when you've created a free acount.
Cross reference with trench maps
The Forum will be happy to help with any questions
ps I moved the thread to 1914-18 so its easier to find for other research
