The Gallipoli Campaign: 25 April 1915 to 9 January 1916

At least forty Macclesfield men serving with the 7th Cheshire Regiment died between 9th August 1915, when the Battalion landed in Gallipoli at Suvla Bay, and December 1915, when the Battalion was withdrawn from Gallipoli and moved to Egypt; twenty of these men died within a week of landing. Many more casualties came from the surrounding villages and other regiments.

The names of local men who died during the Gallipoli campaign of 1915 that have been traced so far are listed below, with a link to those whose details have been uploaded to this website: there are still a number of unidentified casualties to be traced.

There are several duplications of names on the Macclesfield and adjacent village memorials.

Grateful thanks to Harry Carlisle and Geoff Archer for their help with compiling the list.
