H WHITWORTH
Rank:
Number:
Unit: CHESHIRE Regiment
Date of Death:
Age:
Cemetery:

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission records 15 men named H Whitworth who died during the War. None served with the Cheshire Regiment, nor do Regimental records, published just after the War, indicate any casualty of that name.

One of the men, however, does have a local connection. Captain H Whitworth, Manchester Regiment, is commemorated on the Heaton Mersey War Memorial. Whilst it cannot be said with certainty that it is the same man, it seems possible that Captain Whitworth originally joined the army as a private in the Cheshires, transferring to the Manchesters when he became an officer.
