James Gaffney

Pte Welsh Regiment 16813

First disembarked France 15-07-1915
Discharged 09-06-1916

This is the person who best fits the Pte J. Gaffney whose name was on the original Memorial Plaque at St Werburgh's. This James Gaffney may have died after his discharge, due to a war related illness.

He may be related to Thomas Francis Gaffney who married Eleanor Newns at St Werburgh's in 1909 and lived at 93 Westminster Road, Hoole.
