St John & St Mark Church, Bury

1st World War

This page is dedicated to the men commemorated on the plaque from the old St John's Church in our Memorial Chapel or at the St Mark's Memorial (now in the grounds of The Salvation Army).

Across the 2 churches, 123 men gave their lives during the 1st World War. In due time we intend giving short biographies on as many as possible.

Research into their details is work in progress, so please check back. If there's anything that you can add or correct then please use the contact form.

Many thanks to Mark Hone, Bury Grammar School Boys, for providing additional information. Please take a look at the Roll of Honour on their website which contains a great deal of background information and extensive biographies, including some of our own 'old boys'.

If you're doing your own research then you'll find the following sites invaluable: http://www.cwgc.org/ and https://www.forces-war-records.co.uk/
