"H Kenyon possibly Hubert Born Manchestr resident Salford Cheshire Regiment 2/5th Battalion 5378 died 18/11/16 CWG D.2610 Cambridge city cemetery"
I think it's likely that this is the Lance Corporal Harry Kenyon on the Old Salfordians' memorial. His employer Charles Mackintosh & Co. had sent him down to Leicester, and he was killed on 13th October 1915 serving with the 4th Leicester Regiment. His parental home was on Doveleys Road, Pendleton, and although Holy Angels was closer, it was not dedicated until a month after Harry was killed, and I think it's entirely reasonable to picture St. John's, further along The Height, as the family church. He was 26 and unmarried, and he is buried in the Cabaret-Rouge British Cemetery, Souchez. (I believe the 1915 Holy Angels was a temporary building, established on the initiative of the wealthy banking Heywood family after disagreements with the Vicar of St. John's. The names of their demolished mansions Light Oaks, Claremont, Acresfield & Chaseley live on today as nearby street names. When the Heywoods sold off their estates they seem to have retained naming rights for the streets that were then built, because Doveleys Road where the Kenyons lived takes it's name from yet another Heywood location, as do a a dozen or more other local streets, like Moorfield, Caldy and Elleray. The permanent Holy Angels building, consecrated in 1928, proved to be anything but permanent; the mortar had degenerated to little more than sand and it had to be demolished in 1997.) Old Salfordian
Gordon Ewart Holland Flight Sergeant Pilot 1473829 RAFVR 65th Squadron died 29/7/44 CWG Row A Grave 17 Conches En Ouche Communal Cemetery Age 21 son OF Ralph and Susannah Holland of Cheadle Cheshire
Gordon was a former pupil of Salford Grammar School, whose WW2 memorial plaque regrettably had no names on it. He was flying a North American Mustang III from one of the temporary landing strips in Normandy when he failed to return from a mission. Online hobbyists examine aerial combat in the closest detail, matching Luftwaffe records with RAF records, but I found a website where they were still puzzling over the circumstances of Gordon’s death. The Mustang was a brilliant aircraft and very reliable, but they were more vulnerable to ground fire at low level than air-cooled fighters. Then again, he may have been shot down in aerial combat, and, if he was, it was likely to have been by the equally impressive Focke-Wulf Fw 190, which the Squadron was encountering at the time. I think it is more than likely that his peacetime employer had been the Manchester Ship Canal Company, because there is a G.E. Holland on their WW2 war memorial. Old Salfordian
