Martin O'BRIEN
Rank: Private
Number: 266366
Unit: 1/6th Battalion CHESHIRE Regiment
Date of Death: 31 July 1917
Age:
Cemetery: Menin Gate Memorial, Ieper, Belgium

Other than his name on the Stockport War Memorial and the army record showing he enlisted in the town, nothing is known about this soldier. His original service number, 3692, confirms he was not an early volunteer and may have been conscripted during 1916

He was killed on the first day of the Battle of Passchendaele. It is, perhaps, ironic that, as so little is known about him, that he also has no known grave and is commemorated on the Memorial to the Missing.
