J FORSTER
Rank:
Number:
Unit: UNKNOWN LANCASHIRE RGT
Date of Death:
Age:
Cemetery:

It has not been possible to identify this man whose name is inscribed on the Stockport War Memorial amongst the list of those serving with a Lancashire Regiment.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission lists 68 men named Forster and having the initial J, on its Debt of Honour register. None appear to have any obvious connection with the Stockport area.

It is possible that the man had been discharged from the army some considerable time before his death and, subsequently, died of natural causes. Not all entries on the CWGC register include next of kin information and it is, of course, possible that he is one of the 68 men and the link with the local area is not recorded (and he may not have actually been serving with a Lancashire Regiment at time of death).
