THE FOUNDERS OF THE LF WEB SITE THE LATE CAPT.

IN FURTHERANCE OF THAT END ALL SUGGESTIONS THAT THE WEB SITE BE ALLIED TO OR INDEED INTEGRATED INTO THE FUSILIER ASSOCIATION OR ANY OTHER GROUPING WERE FIRMLY REJECTED.

Good morning Keith
See the link below.
The CWGC Web Site records 14 M. Griffiths's as war dead in WW1. Mont Griffiths is the only one recorded as being a Lancashire Fusilier. If you go to the home page and click on the button marked " Postings Gallery " you can then click on the 3rd Bn for further details. Throughout WW1 Manchester Hospitals received many wounded soldiers who subsequently died as a result of their injuries and are buried in various cemeteries in the Manchester area. What is slightly unusual is that the 3rd Bn were never posted overseas and remained in the UK throughout WW1. It is not beyond the bounds of possibilities that he died for reasons other than combatant injury. As you probably know Service Records for WW1 personnel are unavailable due to their destruction during the London Blitz of 1940. Occasionally however fragments of damaged records can be found on Web Sites such as Ancestry.com. The official dates for WW1 are 28 Jul 1914 11 Nov 1918 so he died very early during The Great War.
Hope this has been of help.
Regards
Geoff Pycroft

CWGC
