Loyal North Lancashire Regiment - PoW Other Ranks 1914


The following men - the vast majority, regular soldiers with the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment - became prisoners of war of the Germans on or before Christmas Day 1914. This is an edited roll of 509 NCOs and men who were serving with the 1st Battalion, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment at their time of capture. Read more about this data source on my 1914 PoWs page.

This data has been transcribed from the following undated and badly faded source at the Imperial War Museum:

1. B.O.2 1/229: a 13-page typed document listing men of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment who were captured on or before 25th December 1914.  


My full transcription of this Loyal North Lancs Prisoners of War roll call of other ranks (not reproduced here) also contains the home address against most of the men's names. 

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

Paul - fascinating stuff. By coincidence I am working on the 1914 Star medal roll for Loyal North Lancs. Trying to reconstruct the Main Body and the reinforcement drafts. War Diary has some gaps and the numbers conflict with Hyndson's detailed personal diary (only Officer to make it through 1914 of the originals). Knowing there were 508 POWs is a great help.

Hello Martin, nice to hear from you again; hope all's well.

The list I have published is certainly more comprehensive than the information you'd glean from medal index cards which do not always note that a man was a PoW. That alone makes my list important to medal collectors and LNLR researchers for a start.
