John Thomas PICKFORD
Rank: Private
Number: 64627
Unit: Depot CHESHIRE Regiment
Date of Death: 21 February 1919
Age: 32
Cemetery: Willow Grove Cemetery, Stockport

John was born in the Stockport area, the son of George and Hannah. He was married to Annie Lilian (after the war, she remarried, to a Mr Long, and was living at 9A Old Road, Heaton Norris).

John's service number indicates he was conscripted into the army after late 1916. He does not appear to have an entry in the National Archives' "medal entitlement " database, suggesting , perhaps, that he never saw overseas service. Lack of funding for this project has meant that it has not been possible to obtain a copy of his death certificate which would confirm his cause of death. He is commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, which indicates that his death was related to his army service.
