Isaac SMITH
Rank: Private
Number: 266280
Unit: 1/6th Battalion CHESHIRE Regiment
Date of Death: 31 July 1917
Age: 24
Cemetery: Menin Gate Memorial, Ieper, Belgium

Isaac had been born in Stockport and enlisted in the town into the local Territorial Battalion. His originals service number, 3519, confirms he was not an early volunteer and may well have been conscripted during 1916.  He was killed on the first day of the Third Battle of Ypres (Passchendaele).

Nothing is known of his private life other than the Commonwealth War Graves Commission notes that he was the husband of Mrs E A Smith.
