Patrick Nulty was an elder brother of my grandfather, Thomas Nulty and also brother to Anthony and James Nulty. He was born in Prescot on 10th October 1891.
The 1911 census showed that he was aged 20 and working as a Coal Miner. (I believe that this age is incorrect and that he was actually aged 23).
Patrick was listed in the Prescot Reporter in May 1915 as one of the Catholic men of Prescot serving with the forces, and also the main Reporter list of local men serving.
He did not go overseas before 1916, and he was entitled to the British War Medal and Victory Medal.
He stayed in the army after the war, being renumbered 3644638, serving in Afghanistan, for which he was awarded the General Service Clasp. His medal card recorded his address as 36, Ackers Street, Prescot. Patrick married Emma Critchley in Prescot in 1922, and they went on to have 5 children.
The 1939 National register (below) showed him as living at 109 Shaw Lane, Prescot and working in the Copper Refinery
Patrick died in Prescot in 1953, aged 65.
