Problems in Identification
Beck Row

Bury Free Press 23rd June 1917:-..BECK ROW SOLDIER LOSES AN ARM:-
Sympathy is felt for Mr. and Mrs J.G. Greenacre, Kenny Hill Road, Beck Row, who have been officially notified that their son, Prvt J.G.Greenacre, has been wounded in France and has lost his right arm. He is now in hospital at Chichester, and reported progressing. The parents previously had a son killed in France

Problem...Cannot match this earlier son's death to any memorials names.


The Journal carried a memoriam notice in October 1915 - MARSH, in loving memory of our loving brother Amos who fell asleep on the battlefield October 22nd, 1914. Cannot find any Marsh dying that day on CWGC. Was the battlefield perhaps the "battlefield of life?
