I have just finished researching Fred Lillimans story.
Fred and his elder brother Harry died in July 1916 on the Somme Battlefields. I am now going to finish my research on Harry Lilliman and hope to post his story within the next few days.
It must have been a terrible time for the Lilliman family as the brothers died within 11 days of each other.
If any descendants of the brothers would like to share any family stories or photographs please contact me.
