Introduction.

This work contains information about the family of those living in the modern Lancaster District whose deaths as a result of warfare operations, were recorded in the Lancaster Observer & Morcambe Chronicle and (1914-15) or Lancaster Guardian during the years 1916 - 1918. Many of the reports, (casreps), contain military details and other information, which is not recorded here, full reports of Church Memorial Services, are indicated, but not cited. For full details consult the indicated Newspaper References. Names of schools and work places are given as cited in the newspaper. Williamsons Linoleum Works include, St George's Works, and Lune Mills, also Messrs Jas Williamson and Son. The Boys National School, Leonardgate, was also known as the Nashy, or National school, and St Mary's School, was also known as the Quay school. The geographical area covered by these newspapers is very wide, extending to Skipton, West Yorkshire, and much of South Cumbria, (Westmoreland), and the Fylde, Blackpool area. Deaths of Officers of the Kings's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment are recorded in the newspapers, as also are casualty lists for the same Regiment, irrespective of place of abode. Those living outside Lancaster District (2003) except those listed on Lancaster Royal Grammar School Memorial, and those who do not have a printed Obituary are not included. Photographs accompanying Obituaries are listed, but individual photographs in year end supplements are not listed. Casulties listed by the Lancaster Military Heritage Society, Queen's Jubilee War Memorials Project (2002-3) are given the appropriate code number, from which the Memorial may be found, on application to the Secretary of the Society. The project includes the following Memorials. Abbeystead (Over Wyresdale), Bolton-Le-Sands, Borwick, Carnforth, Caton, Dolphinholme, Forton, Galgate / Ellel, Glasson Dock, Halton, Heysham, Hornby, Lancaster, Lancaster Royal Grammar School, Morecambe, Morecambe High School, Over Kellet, Overton, Pilling, Quernmore, Scorton, Silverdale, Slyne with Hest, St Joseph's Church Skerton, Tunstall, Waring & Gillows, Warton, Wennington / Tatham Fells, Westfield Village, Whittington, Yealand Conyers, and other private memorials. Many persons have been omitted from Memorials, usually because relatives failed to register their details to the appropriate authorities, also Obituaries were usually supplied by the family of the deceased casualty. In a few cases we have found names have been miss-spelled on memorials. The Group will be pleased to help should any problems of identity arise and they will also be pleased to be informed of any other details, memorabilia or information concerning casualties listed here. Names are listed alphabetically by surname.
