17th March 2017: Harry Carlisle’s WW2 Research Appeal

 

Read the Macclesfield Express article, published on their website on 17th March 2017, about Harry Carlisle’s quest to research the WW2 casualties named on the Macclesfield Park Green war memorial.

The identity of one of the men, Norman Leonard, remains a mystery – it is believed that the only man named Norman Leonard who was born in Macclesfield in the first half of the 20th century did not die in WW2.

On completion of his research Harry plans to produce a book, to be published in June 2017. He has already published two books about WWI casualties, one for Macclesfield and the other for the surrounding villages.

Harry was also interviewed on Silk 106.9 radio by Carl Hartley – listen to the interview on Carl’s website.

Can you help? Do you have any information or photos for any of the WW2 casualties named on the Park Green war memorial, whose names are listed below? If so, please contact us.

Names in red are linked to the entry on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website.

17th March 2017: Harry Carlisle’s WW2 Research Appeal — 1 Comment

  1. Llewellyn R Davis was a cousin of my father. His parents were Lily and Fred Davis. Lily’s maiden name was Frisk as was my grandma Alice Frisk. I think they were cousins, but it’s a very unusual surname so fairly easy to trace. They had a large family and Llewelyn’s eldest sister and my father were born a few months apart in 1914/15 and were bought up almost a brother and sister. I didn’t remember Llewelyn ever being talked about and only knew of his existence because when we went to Macclesfield cemetery to put flowers and wreaths on family graves we always looked after their family grave and on one of the grave kerbs was Llewelyn’s name. I knew he had died during the war but for some reason thought he was in the RAF the same as my dad. Only a few years ago did I discover he died in Burma and that he is commemorated on the memorial near to the airport in Yangon, sadly when I visited Burma only a year before I did not know this or I would have visited the memorial.
    Since my fathers death in 2000 I have lost touch with the family who I believe possibly still have connections with Macclesfield. I would love to get in touch. When I visited Macclesfield last year for a High School reunion I visited the family grave but couldn’t find the Davis or could be Frisk grave which I remember was near to the Poyser, Frisk grave. Could you please let me know when the book is published as I would love to buy a copy. Remember me to Rainow; I attended the Church of England school leaving in 1962 to go the the High school I left in 1969 to go to Exeter to college and when my parents moved in 1983 my connections were finally severed.
