This photograph was printed by Mr E Bullock of Macclesfield and published in 'The Missionary Echo'. Many of the men lived in Nether Alderley and probably attended the chapel at Soss Moss Hall. There is a possibility that some of then went to war in the next couple of years and maybe did not come back.

The names we know so far are;

Back row, from the left;

B1 wearing a dog collar- possibly the local Minister?

B2 possibly a Jennings, strong family likeness


B4 Albert Henry Dawson, farmed at Soss Moss Hall, Nether Alderley

B5-B9 not known

Front Row, from the left;

F1 John Henry Jennings, engineer, established the business that became J H Jennings & Co, Motor Body Builders, Sandbach


F3 Ernest Webb, farmed Sandle Heath Farm/ Chandlers Farm, Nether Alderley

F4 Jesse Baskerville, farmed Corbishley Farm, Nether Alderley

F5 Adam Dawson, farmed Orrells Well, Chorley, Alderley Edge


Can you help fill in the gaps?
