We are very grateful to the niece of Wilfid Taylor for providing these very evocative photographs, the documents shown and the interesting story of an army family which follows:

The larger photograph (top left) is one taken of the horse inspection on a Sunday by the Commanding Officer and his Staff at Lowther Park Penrith at the summer camp in 1914. The Cumberland and Westmorland Yeomanry (7th Border Regiment) then went straightway south to France, eventually losing their horses as well as their men! Wilfrid is 5th in line from the left, resplendent in his cavalry uniform.

At the outbreak of the war the Taylor family were living at 67 Ashfield Avenue. My Grandad, Robert Taylor had left Waring and Gillows in 1912 unwilling to accept reductions in standards. (He was the "Quality" man of those days and all the woodwork and furniture in the Lancaster Town Hall was "passed " by him.). He lived in a flat in Penny Street and then joined the Army in 153 Coy Royal Defense Corps spending the war years guarding prisoners of war in Skipton. Afterwards he became an Instructor at the rehabilitation centre Squires Gate Blackpool.

Uncle Wilfrid was a very good pianist; he also worked at Waring and Gillows as a carpenter/joiner and intended to marry Lily Calked, the lady mentioned in the wil (extract below). He was my Mother's only Brother. My Father was Thomas Hannon and he enlisted on 9 September 1914 in The King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment. At some time he was hospitalised in England, and then was transferred to the 6th Lincolnshire Regiment. He was taken prisoner on 27 May 1918 and discharged March 1919.

Wilfrid Taylor's Grandfather William French had been a Militia man serving for 21 years including time in Australiaa and New Zealand. He attested at Rochester Kent on 8 January 1850 aged just over 20. He was severely wounded in the attack on the revbel Camp at Eureka Ballerat Australia on 3 December 1854. He was discharged at Preston as 2865 Sergeant from the 12th Regiment of Foot (The Suffolk Regiment).

My Dad's brother William (Billy) Hannon was born in 1896 at 23 Elgin Street Lancaster and joined the royal Fusiliers at the outbreak of the war. He was killed in action 29 March 1915 -he was only 18 years old and Dad's only Brother.

Please read this in conjunction with the biography of Wilfrid Taylor, William's brother inlaw, who was killed in action World War One.

Auntie Lena, who is 88 years old this year and is my Grandad's (John) only living child.  As she was only two/three weeks old when he was killed she does not know a lot about him, but she does remember being told that he was awarded a Certificate from the Humane Society for saving a child from drowning in the river Lune outside Williamson's where he worked.There seems to be some confusion about his age when he was killed but as he was born in 1886 he would only be 31 years old when he died and not 33. My auntie said there was a Robert who died of yellow fever in the West Indies as she remembers her grandmother getting a black edged card reporting his death and he was recorded as being a native of Lancaster.I have no record of a Robert in my family tree but he could have been a cousin of John's as his father had four sons. There is a grave stone with Richard and John's names on in the Far Moor cemetery - on the same headstone as their mother to commemorate their deaths.My Auntie still has his little bag with his scissors in from his time in the army.

There is some confusion here. The memorial lists THREE brothers J, R and RobT. There are only two Town Hall forms for John and Richard. There is only one Robert (William) from Jarrow on the Soldiers died data base, and this is most unlikely to be the J on our memorial. Joseph also is only connected to Lancaster by the Regiment, and even then was formerly a Lancs Fusilier. There are only two obituaries from the Guardian. In the letter from Richard to his mother (above) he mentions "our Joe" - is he the one? Maybe there was a mistake on the Memorial. We leave Joseph here and honour his name.

There is some confusion here. The memorial lists THREE brothers J, R and RobT. There are only two Town Hall forms for John and Richard. There is only one Robert (William) from Jarrow on the Soldiers died data base, and this is most unlikely to be the J on our memorial. Joseph also is only connected to Lancaster by the Regiment, and even then was formerly a Lancs Fusilier. There are only two obituaries from the Guardian. We can only assume that there was a mistake on the Memorial .Richard could have also been known as Robert? We leave Joseph here and honour his name.
