I am working on a research project the war dead of both Castlefields & St. Michael's parish's.

Shrewsbury all parishioners who were killed or died in 1914-1919.

I would like to find as many photographs of the fallen soldiers as I can.

I have a list of those I require and I know its a long shot but maybe some one out there can help.

many thanks PHIL

Hi. I have noticed you were looking for information on Edgar James HUSSEY.
I too have been searching for photographs of this casualty and wondered if you had found anything since you made this post?
He lived at 56 St Michael's Street and was married only weeks before he was killed.
His widow lived in the same house until the 1950s I believe.
Edgar's family came from Buckinghamshire originally but moved to Shrewsbury around the turn of the century.
I have been looking for more information on Edgar as he may have been a close friend of my Grandfather around the time he was killed.
I do have a picture which may be Edgar, but I don't know without anything to check it against.

I notice that Thomas GROOM  RWF is missing from your list.

Son of George and Mary Groom, 2 Beaumont Terrace, St. John's Street, Castlefields.

KIA 28 June 1918

Does this mean that you have a photo?

If so, I should appreciate a copy please as I believe him to be also on our War Memorial here in Loppington.

Many thanks,

David Edge, Loppington.
