THOMAS FISHER

In its edition of 19 January 1917, the Stockport Advertiser reported the death of Private Thomas Fisher, of Woodley, in July 1916. He had been posted as missing at that time and, as there had been no further news, the War Office had concluded that he must have been killed. He was married with one chld and had enlisted on 3 September 1914. Previously he had worked as a painter for William Wilkinson of Hyde Road, Woodley.

The records of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission note two men called Thomas, or T, Fisher who died in July 1916 and he is probably one of them. One served with the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers but the more likely man is the one who served with the 11 th Battalion, Cheshire Regiment (service number 16904). This man’s date of death is 3 July 1916 and he is buried in Lonsdale Cemetery, Authuile, Somme, France.

HARRY HUGH FLETCHER

Harry Fletcher’s death was reported in the local newspaper. It said he had died, on 27 October 1918, aged 23, of wounds he’d received in action.

A copy of his death certificate has been obtained but it shows that, rather than a death from wounds, Harry had died of pneumonia after falling victim to the worldwide influenza pandemic.

He had served as a Private (service number 64751) with the 9 th and then 6 th Battalion, Cheshire Regiment but, after being discharged, had returned to Stockport and was working as a joiner at a local munitions works.
