Richard’s birth was registered, in Stockport, between April and June 1898. His parents, Richard & Ellen, lived at 36 Barnwell Street, Stockport.

Richard originally joined the local Territorial Battalion (1/6th Cheshires), having a service number of 4316. His later number was allocated in late 1916/early 1917, so he must have been transferred to the 1st battalion after this time.

His last tour of duty in the trenches is described here.
