Rank: Private
Number: 20960
Unit: PAY CORPS
Date of Death: 3 August 1918
Age: 33
Cemetery: Willow Grove Cemetery

Born in 1885, Charles was named after his father who is believed to have married Mary Atherton two years before at St Andrew’s Church, Ancoats.

In 1906, 21 year old Charles married his fiancée, Hannah Moore, also in the Manchester area. His burial at Willow Grove suggests that the couple must have set up home in Stockport although no details have been discovered. As far as can be established, Charles never served abroad during the War and his death was due to natural causes.

By the early 1920s, Hannah had remarried. She was now Hannah Pollitt and was living at 5 Jobling Street in the Bradford area of Manchester.
