In Memory of

Private John Henry Kirk MM

6149
1st Bn., Leicestershire Regiment
Killed In Action 21st July 1918, Age 36

Other than CWGC stating that John Henry Kirk was the husband of Alice Kirk of Ash Avenue, Earlestown and SDGW giving his place of birth as Warrington, it has not been possible to find very much about this casualty, not even how he won his Military Medal. No newspaper obituary has been found. His name is on the Tyne Cot Memorial.
