WWI gardeners at Lilburn Tower

Thanks to research undertaken by Robbie Burn and detailed information provided by Janet Rice (North East War Memorial Project), the Breamish Valley War Memorial Project has added the names of three servicemen to its Roll of Honour.

The three men all appear to have enlisted at around the same time in Alnwick and all joined the 9th Battalion, Northumberland Fusiliers.

Prior to this, they all appear to have been working as gardeners at the nearby Lilburn Tower Estate.
