Mack thank you for the list of names from St. Andrews. As these are all from the manchester regt can I assume there are others?

I was brought up in Levenshulme. My mother lived in Forest Range until she passed away a few years ago. As a lad, I was always fascinated by the names on st peter's memorial. I used to pass it every day as it was on my paper round. Now that I've retired I have the time to investigate things more thoroughly.

Tim, thank you for the link. It's interesting to see that Isaac's widow moved to Nuneaton. I live just a few miles away from there.

Regards, Pete.

We need Isaac Harrison's burial record at Willow Grove and then details of any headstone.
