Date of Death:

Halliwell's name is amongst those on the Stockport War Memorial who served with the Manchester Regiment but it has not been possible to identify him with certainty. There are no names amongst the records of the War Graves Commission that have an obvious connection with the local area.

There are, however, a number of names that have been discovered during this project which are of potential speculative interest. The one Halliwell name that can be identified with certainty is that of Hubert H Halliwell whose name is recorded on the Memorial at Heaton Moor.

There is also a newspaper report of the death, on 1 July 1916, of J H Halliwell, aged 27, who had attended St Paul's Church in Heaton Moor. He is not recorded on the Heaton Moor Memorial but it seems possible that he was related in some way to Hubert. This man was killed whilst serving with 22nd Manchesters. The newspaper articles reported that the family had previously lived in the Newton Heath area of Manchester and then in Woodley.

The Woodley reference is perhaps interesting as the nearby Bredbury Memorial records the name of J N Hallowell who also cannot be identified.

It may be that the Bredbury Hallowell and the Stockport Halliwell are the same person and that they are in fact J H Halliwell. However, as suggested earlier, this must remain speculation unless further information comes to light.
