SALEM ODDFELLOWS CALL, OLDHAM WAR MEMORIAL & ROLL OF HONOUR

World War 1 - Roll of Honour with detailed information
Compiled and copyright © 2004 Martin Edwards

This transcription is taken from an old postcard. The Oddfellows Call was a pub on Lees Road, Oldham at Salem and was a small, low building that was demolished circa 1970's. The Oddfellows in question were an insurance mutual which collected premiums through reps who called at households. The whereabouts of this roll of honour is unknown currently but if anybody could enlighten us we would be grateful. Note: The old county structure before 1974 is being used here so although now part of Greater Manchester, Oldham has been listed under Lancashire.
