Dedicated to the memory of all the men and women of the Bridgnorth area who died during the two World Wars.
Soldiers Died in the Great War records an Albert Haines born Chelmarsh, residing in Monk Hopton who enlisted at Brecon. I have not yet been able to find any trace of Albert. He does not appear to have been registered or baptised in the Brignorth Area neither does he appear in any of the likely censuses. Possibly he gave false details when he enlisted.
Albert Haines served with the Lancashire Fusiliers. First with the 2nd Battalion and then with the 17th. He was killed in action on 27th September, 1918 and is buried in Menin Road South Military Cemetery, Ypres.
Private Albert Haines, 53593, Lancashire Fusiliers, was awarded the Victory and British War Medals.
This memorial has mostly been compiled from official sources. It would be good to be able to expand it with more personal material - memories, stories, photos, etc. If you have any suitable material or any corrections please contact Greg. For news of updates follow @BridgnorthHeros on Twitter.
