Lostock Hall in the First World War
This web site is dedicated to the men of Lostock Hall, Lancashire, who gave their lives for King and Country in the First World War, and also to those men who served and returned home.
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 two other sites that may be of interest:
Bamber Bridge is a Lancashire village adjacent to Lostock Hall.

I also have a website giving biographical and military details
of all the men with the Brierley surname who were killed in the
First World War. To go to this website, click here.
