In Memory of

Gunner Terence Corcoran

Number not known
Royal Field Artillery
Died 17th August 1916

Terence was one of seven brothers who served with the Army. He lived at 43, Cherry Street, Earlestown with his parents Patrick and Alice Corcoran. Sketchy details about him are contained in his brother Peter's obituary, published in the NEG on 19th April 1918, which states that he was invalided home and died of consumption. It has not been possible to find a CWGC entry or a newspaper obituary. His name, along with his brothers, is on a list of recruits published in the NEG.

Terence's "burnt records" are available at the Public Record Office at Kew, but are difficult to read.
