Harold HOOLEY
Rank: Private
Number: 44154
Unit: 13th Battalion CHESHIRE REGIMENT
Date of Death: 10 August 1917
Age: 23
Cemetery: Menin Gate Memorial, Ieper, Belgium

The 1901 Census records that Harold, then aged 7, was living in Cheadle Hulme having been born in Stockport. Several other men named Hooley, commemorated on local memorials, have a connection with the Cheadle area and he was probably related to them.

Harold is only commemorated on the Memorial at Stockport Art Gallery suggesting that, in later life, he had moved away from the Cheadle area. He enlisted in Stockport and his number suggests this was in mid-1916.

He was killed in an important attack described here.
