Nothing is known for certain about John Lowndes, except that he had been born in Stockport and enlisted there. The family history website, FreeBMD, does list a John Lowndes whose birth was registered in the town between April and June 1883 and who may be the same man.

His service number is consistent with him enlisting into the army between May and July 1915.

Private Lowndes was killed in the action described here.
