This web site is dedicated to the people of Lostock Hall, Lancashire, who made the ultimate sacrifice in two World Wars, and also to those men who served and returned home, and to their families and loved ones.
Lest we forget.
I am enormously grateful to the following people for their help and encouragement in this and other projects:
Dr David Hunt, curator of South Ribble Museum and Exhibition Centre.
Charlie O’Donnell, author of the South Ribble in the Great War website.
Paul McCormick, author of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment website, and Janet Davis with help tracing L.N.LAN.R. men and sorting out some complicated family trees.
And the following individuals who provided insights or information: John Brown, Heather Crook, Bill Wareing, Graham Whittle
I have three other sites that may be of interest:
Bamber Bridge is a Lancashire village adjacent to Lostock Hall.
