Joseph Carroll's grave

The man referred to above was a native of Woolton in Liverpool, though he appears to have lived in Widnes and Warrington at various times. I am unable to find a clear link between him and Prescot so cannot say for certain that this is the man referred to on the Civic Memorial.

CWGC records record Joseph's next of kin as "J Carroll Esq, 18 Cobden Street, Woolton" and the "Register of Soldiers Effects" list the sole recipient as his brother, James. I therefore assume that these are one and the same person.

The Prescot Reporter produced a list in 1915 of men serving with the colours, and this included one Joseph CARROLL, stating that he served with the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment.

I have traced three men of that name serving with LNLR and of these, one died in South Africa in 1919, by which time he had been transferred to the Royal Engineers. He had originally gone to Africa with the Loyals on 28th October 1914.

But again, I am struggling to absolutely link this death with the man on the memorial and named in the Prescot Reporter.
