Stephen Begley, born 17 May 1892, last address 196 Ordsall Lane, maybe 138 Oldfield Road.
1st Manchester Regiment, Pte 1577 Date of death 20 Dec 1914 Le Touret Memorial, Pas de Calais, France. Unknown grave.
Im curious about these numbers on his medal card: 14/1/104 B13 2858 H/1/1 5 Already found it, saw the medal card of one of his older brothers.
Did his name ever appear on a Salford Memorial?
The details on CWGC shows his parents'address as 34 Tatton Street. In 1920 his widowed mother still lived at Oldfield Rd with three other sons, in 1822 Tatton Street (Electoral Rools). Could this mean he had been missing all that time, presumed dead?
As Jim states we have not found Stephen's name on any of the memorials yet. Taking Tatton St as his main address I would have thought that he would be remembered on either the Regent Square memorial, the Salford Lads Club memorial or the St Ignatius memorial, but he is not.

I can't see anything that may suggest the church had a memorial but will bear in mind when next at the library. I am finding that very few Roman Catholic churches had memorials that named the men who had fallen or served.
