Special Thanks to Nigel Henderson for all his hard work in compiling all this information
and for allowing me to put it online

In 2008, I helped Philip Orr (author of The Road to the Somme) in his preparations for the Remembrance Sunday service in Fitzroy Presbyterian Church on University Street in Belfast. In addition to preparing a visual backdrop for a short play (“Hugh’s War”) focusing on the experiences of one man, I prepared a presentation listing the men from the Crescent, Donegall Pass and Fitzroy Avenue congregations who served in the two world wars. On Remembrance Sunday, as the names scrolled up, I began to think about the names

... who were these men?

... what were their family backgrounds?

... what did they do for a living?

... when and where did they die?

I decided to try to locate as much information as possible about these servicemen and this information is now loaded on the website of Fitzroy Presbyterian Church (which incorporates the Crescent and Donegall Pass congregations). I drew information from a wide range of sources, including:

The Presbyterian Church in Ireland’s “Roll of Honour” and the War Memorials for the three congregations and the 9th BB Old Boys Association;

The Ireland Census Returns for 1901 and 1911;

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s “Debt of Honour” register;

Great War Forum and general internet searches;

The websites of the Royal Belfast Academical Institution and Friends’ School in Lisburn;

The Northern Whig, Belfast News Letter and Belfast Evening Telegraph editions from late 1914 to 1919.

Inevitably, the focus of my research fell on servicemen from the First World War and the Service and Sacrifice page on the Fitzroy website includes the following documents

Brothers in Arms, which highlights families were several members fought in the First World War;

First World War servicemen biographies,

Second World War servicemen biographies and wartime memories of some current members of the Fitzroy congregation;

War Memorials featuring First World War servicemen from the three congregations;

First World War facts and figures relating to servicemen from the three congregations;

Gallantry Awards;

First World War profile for each of the 365 First World War servicemen from the three congregations (these profiles appear further down this page);

Postcards and letters from one First World War serviceman to his widowed mother;

Images of Enlistment Papers and Book of Honour entries for Canadian servicemen with connections to one of the three congregations.

In addition, the Fitzroy website has:

a flash video containing pictures of First World War servicemen;

a video commemoration, The Fallen, listing the men (with, where available, their photographs and a photograph of the cemetery or memorial) who died in the two world wars;

a video, “Hugh’s War”, narrated by Philip Orr (author of “The Road the Somme”)

Please note that some of the documents/videos are quite large and may take a while to load.

The following War Memorials (with transcriptions of the names) can be viewed on this website :

Crescent Presbyterian Church;

Donegall Pass Presbyterian Church;

Fitzroy Avenue Presbyterian Church;

9th BB Old Boys Association;

North of Ireland Football & Cricket Club.

In addition, the pages of the intricately decorated Memorial Book (with a transcription of the names) commemorating the men who died in the Second World War and the men and women who served in that war can be viewed here.

I am grateful to Mary Lennon for her assistance in my research and for loading some of the material on this website in a more searchable format.

If anyone can add, or correct, information, I would be grateful to hear from you. I can also arrange for access to Fitzroy Presbyterian Church for anyone that wants to view or photograph the War Memorials.

Great War Servicemen Profiles – Some Notes

PCI Roll of Honour

The congregational listings have a tendency to record the Regiment by initials only and RIR could refer to the Royal Irish Rifles or the Royal Irish Regiment – unless otherwise specified, it has been assumed that RIR means Royal Irish Rifles.

For Royal Irish Rifles servicemen, the congregational listings sometimes use rank “Rifleman” and sometimes the rank “Private”. For simplicity and consistency, the Rank of any man below the rank of Lance-Corporal is recorded as “Rifleman”.

Whilst the PCI Roll of Honour lists for the Crescent and Donegall Pass congregations contain extensive information, the list for Fitzroy Avenue is somewhat spartan (being limited to Forename, Surname and whether wounded/died/PoW).

The lists do contain some errors, spelling of names and/or house numbers, and duplications:

The PCI Roll of Honour for Fitzroy Avenue (and its War Memorial plaque) include a Dr. Bryson Hogg and a Gerald Hogg MB (no address details) whilst the Donegall Pass list includes a Bryson Hogg MD and a Gerald Hogg MD, both of Ormeau Road;

The Fitzroy Avenue and Crescent lists both include a Philip W Frew and a William Baxter;

The Fitzroy Avenue list has a Jack D Hunter (wounded) whilst the Crescent list has a J D Hunter (wounded);

The Crescent list contains a Samuel D. Allan (Royal Irish Rifles) and a Samuel D. Allen (Royal Flying Corps), both of whom are recorded as living at 20 Maryville Street. As an Ernest Allen is also listed for the Maryville address, only the Samuel D Allen entry has been retained. An examination of the Belfast Street Directories for the period fails to show a family called Allen or Allan living at 20 Maryville Street (unless it was as lodgers);

Where there are variants in the spelling of forenames or surnames (e.g. McCallum/McCollam, Legge/Legg, Edmond/Edmund), both versions have been included.

There are some names on the memorial plaques in the Church vestibule which are not on the relevant PCI Roll of Honour (for example, Alfred and Herbert Thorpe of Crescent) and names which are on the PCI Roll of Honour but not on the relevant War Memorial plaque (for example, Adrian Thompson of Crescent).

The Donegall Pass War Memorial records “Pte. T Halliday” as a fatality but the PCI Roll of Honour entry for the congregation records that Thomas Halliday was a Lieutenant.

The PCI Roll of Honour lists include people who had moved to Dominion territories or America – for example, the McAlister brothers (Donegall Pass congregation) who were living in Toronto and the Gordon brothers (Crescent congregation) whose parents re-settled in Boston (USA).

Addresses

In addition to the details on the PCI Rolls of Honour, addresses (and additional personal and family information) have also been obtained from the Ireland Census returns for 1901 and 1911 and from Street Directories.

The census returns only records people (including visitors) who were residing at the property on Sunday 31st March 1901 and Sunday 2nd April 1911, and would exclude family members who happened to be away from home on that specific evening – for example, PCI Roll of Honour for Donegall Pass lists William and Richard Gourley of 3 Elm Street, but only Richard appears on the 1911 Census return.

Sometimes the Census Enumerators recorded “number of the house in the street” rather than the postal house number – consequently, there are discrepancies between the details recorded on the Census Returns and in the Belfast Street Directories.

On a number of occasions, the details in the returns (including street names and personal names) have been incorrectly transcribed on the website.

The year at which the family lived at various addresses has been recorded where it is known. When the Street Directories and Census Returns differ, both addresses have been included, with the relevant source specified. The addresses without any date are ones where the details have come from a PCI Roll of Honour and could not be verified.

Where an address has been identified for a family in the 1901 or 1911 Ireland Census but the named serviceman does not appear on the return, it has been assumed that the address is the parental home – for example, the 1901 Census return for 9 Bruce Street includes Benjamin Barrett but does not include “A Barrett” but both are listed for the same address in the PCI Roll of Honour for the Crescent congregation.

Commonwealth War Graves Commission

On a few occasions, the “Age at Death” recorded on the CWCG Debt of Honour Register does not match other records, for example:

Harry Andrew Gordon – the Canadian Attestation document records his Date of Birth as 29th May 1894 and the CWGC Register records his Date of Death as 24th January 1919 and his age as 23 not 24;

Thomas Edward Gordon – the Canadian Attestation document records his Date of Birth as 5th November 1888 and the CWGC Register records his Date of Death as 5th April 1918 and his age as 30 not 29;

John McLaughlin – the Canadian Attestation document records his Date of Birth as 2nd November 1883 and the CWGC Register records his Date of Death as 2nd February 1915 and his age as 26. The 1911 Ireland Census Return records that he was 21 on 2nd April 1911, which accords with the 1889 birth year held on the Ulster Historical Foundation website. This would have made him either 24 or 25 when he was killed.

David Thompson – the 1911 Ireland Census Return records that he was 17 years old on 2nd April 1911, which would make him 23 or 24 when he was killed on 16th August 1917. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission Register records him as being 20 when he was killed.

General

Additional family, professional and war service information has been identified for some of the servicemen and this information is included in the Great War – Servicemen Biographies chapter an * appears after the name of the relevant men.

Date of Birth – where the specific DoB is not known, the Age recorded on the 1911 Ireland Census Return has been used to calculate the years (e.g. April 1890 to March 1891) in which the birth would have taken place. Online genealogy websites have been used to narrow down the year of birth where possible.

Unit – men often moved between Battalions and between Regiments; and regiments often moved between Brigades and Divisions. Consequently, men might have served in other Battalions, Regiments, Brigades and Division to those specified. For many men (generally those with links to Fitzroy Avenue Presbyterian Church), there is no Unit information at all.

There are a variety of images (servicemen pictures, newspaper clippings and Ireland Census returns) stored on Photobucket – the four albums can be accessed from this link:  Where there is material on Photobucket, there will be a table in the serviceman’s profile below indicating which types of images are available.
