BRUNSWICK CHURCH HINDLEY GREEN

Started by: GOLDEN BEAR (6569) 

I am making an appeal to ask does anyone visit or attend the BRUNSWICK CHURCH ,down LEIGH RD ,HIndley Green , if so can you tell if there is a plaque inside to commemorate a local lad form Leigh Rd who joined up in 1914-18 war and unfortunately killed in October 1918 just a couple of weeks before armistice . If there is one i would endeavour to viisit it for further info , His name was WILFRED CLARKE , I THINK HE JOINED THE SALFORD PALS OR THE LANCASHIRE FUSILIERS .

Sorry not familiar with the church, but if you go to the cwgc photographic project site you can order a photograph of the grave (dont know the cost?) or you can copy and paste it yourself,
