South Lancashire Regiment - PoW Other Ranks 1914


Here's an edited list of 342 South Lancashire Regiment NCOs and men - 1st and 2nd Battalion - who became prisoners of war on or before 25th December 1914. Read more about this data source on my 1914 PoWs page.

This data has been transcribed from the Imperial War Museum's collection, specifically item B.O.2 1/254 which is an undated eighteen-page typed list of South Lancashire Regiment prisoners of war. 

My full transcription of this South Lancashire Regiment PoW collection (not reproduced here) also contains the following information against some or all of the names:

Home address
Next of kin
Next of kin's address
Whether or not repatriated at the time the list was drawn up
Date of deaths
Notes

Judging by the regimental numbers below, at least fifty of these men originally attested with the Special Reserve. Of the regulars, the longest serving man appears to be Private Fowles who joined the regiment in 1894, whilst Private Nuttall was the PoW with the least army service. His number indicates that he had only joined the regiment in June 1914.

The full transcription is available for sale as a download or CD for £20. Contact me if you would like to purchase a copy.
