It has not been possible to identify a Cheshire Regiment soldier with the initial J D Ball and he is presumed to actually be John Barsby Ball.

This man was born in Leicester, the son of Thomas Ball, 57 Brunswick Street but enlisted in the army in Stockport, during September 1914. Other than that, his connection with the local area is not known. John Ball was killed in the 12th Cheshires’ major attack of the war described here.
