Yes.I have a photo of your Clarence Duckworth. The photo is ,I believe,of the engagement of  'Clar' and Ada Crompton. He is in his uniform. In 1921 Ada married Alfred Crossley & in due course they became my Grandparents. Ada died in 1961. I know nothing about him however except from the War Graves Commission website. I would be willing to send you the original photo if you let me know how as I would like the photo to go back to his family. On the Duke of Lancasters Own Yeomanry website I have mentioned Clar as being the fiance of Ada when I gave them my Grandfather's War photos & wrote a brief piece.Also I met Lieu.-Colonel John  Tustin the webmaster should you wish to verify this -and me.

Hi Jane, looking at some of your posts tonight, do you need some help specifically with WW1? You may want to join the project The Great War. Have a look at the project page. You can honour your ancestors in adding the right info in a professional way (unfortunately i believe it is known as a sticker, which i disapprove of in relation to this category!) 

Here's info i found on my first attempt..... And he's buried in Manchester, in Phillips Park Cemetery. I'm not sure where in Manchester, and its tiny! 


Service Number 40162

Died 19/09/1918

Aged 23

"D" Coy. 2nd Bn. 
The Loyal North Lancashire Regiment

Son of Thomas and Elizabeth Duckworth, of Bradford, Manchester.

Sorry, not sure why this has appeared in large Bold type, I'm not shouting at you :-)

Details of Phillips Park Cemetery, with location and photos, can be seen at

Cheers Paul, I should have referenced CWGC in my answer as that's where I pulled the info (just didn't get the map!). I would highly recommend the Commonwealth War Graves Commission as a source! They have helped me over and over again! Obviously its secondary but they go above and beyond to help when you contact them!
Thanks Ellen, my iPad was not playing! Apologies if this offended someone to cause them to flag the answer as inappropriate.
