NOTES

Except where otherwise noted, all personnel served in the British forces and are classed by CWGC as ‘Commonwealth War Dead’.  

Each entry is listed: surname, first names (or initials), rank, Service/Unit, age, date of death, regimental or service number, next of kin (WW2 entries have less detail), grave section and number (or screen wall details for those buried in public graves).  Additional material has been added in italics.

CWGC used roman numerals when listing some of the sections, but these have been converted to match current cemetery practice.

Even with the aid of detailed layout plans, some graves or plots have not been traced;  the numbering sequences do not appear to follow any logical pattern, especially where subsequent graves have been added to earlier sections.  Many graves are unmarked by a headstone.

The symbol ^ has been used to denote those whose names are on the Town Hall Roll of Honour which covers only WW1 and is far from a complete or accurate record.

 

Part 1

 

Those named in this section were buried in this cemetery: the location of the grave is as shown , and in most cases the standard CWGC headstone is in place.

246 Squadron of Coastal Command was stationed at Bowmore, operating Sunderland flying boats from Loch Indaal.  On the evening of Sunday, January 24, 1943, Sunderland flying boat MK111 DV was returning to base, low on fuel, and in less than ideal weather. After circling the loch a number of times, the aircraft made its approach, but appears to have struck the ground on its final approach, possibly due to the prevailing winds, and crashed on he beach, just short of the loch.  Tragically, although most of the crew escaped the initial crash, they returned to the wreckage to free the rear gunner, trapped in the wreckage – just at the moment the depth charges aboard exploded, killing all nine present. Only the captain and two comrades survived, having sustained injuries in the crash, they had made their way to the slopes below the beach.

From the history of St Charles Borromeo, Aigburth Road:

A poignant reminder of the suffering that the Great War 1914-1918, brought to families is palpable in the window given by Mr. Emile Purgold in memory of his two sons who gave their lives for their country in August 1917. The kneeling figures of the two khaki-clad servicemen Raymond and Louis are each supported by their patron saints, of Ransom and Crusader fame respectively Dominant is the figure of the Eucharistic Lord. The figure of Raymond is detailed with boots, spurs and calthrops, and on the border below is the badge of the King's Liverpool - the spirited charger. Louis wears puttees. His cap, like his brothers is on the floor beside him, and like his brother his hands are clasped but his head is bent forward. As a member of the Royal Flying Corps the badge depicted is wings in a feathered circle and laurel wreath.

Louis Purgold’s brother served in a Territorial battalion and died in France:

11 other seaman from this vessel are recorded as having died on the same date. The ADC 527 was a British Mark IV Landing Craft Tank converted at the end of the war for ammunition disposal, hence the prefix ADC (Ammunition Dumping Craft).  She and two other vessels were on route from Silloth to Cairn Ryan with a cargo of ammunition when they ran into a storm.  The two other vessels veered away to the shelter of the Isle of Man, but the unwieldy ADC 527 pressed on only to founder with the loss of all twelve crew near to Burrow Head.

"The port of Cairnryan was an ideal....location from which to carry out  munition dumping operations....It was within comfortable distance of the area selected for dumping,  the Beaufort Dyke,  a chasm about midway between County Down and the south-west coast of Scotland.  This trench was about 7 miles long,  2 miles wide and 144 fathoms at its deepest point." Quoted in MOD website on sea dumping of munitions, 2006.
