Hello
Wondering if anyone could help me locate some information on a Fred Wainwright. He was born abt 1878 in Lancashire (born and raised in Ardwick Manchester). Married to a Jessie Wainwright. 3 daughters Doris, Annie and Elsie. He also served in the Lancashire Fusiliers and was wounded.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
