Gerrard HESSION of Galway and then Lancshire

Colne Lancs
I'm hoping someone can help me trace any information at all on Gerrard Hessian. He was born around the turn of the century in Galway (I think) and later moved to Lancashire (poss Manchester or Burnley)
He married a girl called Kathleen Walsh, again I think in Manchester, was was thought to have fought in spanish civil war in 1937. Kathleen died in 1955 and Gerrard later remarried to unknown lady. He is thought to have died in late 80's early 90's
I am very interested in his parentage and in any siblings that he may have had, and his first marrage to Kathleen, and of his service in civil war. Are there any sites that give names of uk based volunteers?
Thanks in anticipation of any help or information at all that f.h.u.k. friends can give.
best wishes
hi Julie,
thanks for that. I was aware of this site, but from memory I seem to remember that it's fairly non specific, however I will go back and revisit it and check it out more thouroughly. Thanks for your interest and help,
best wishes,
