My Father now sadly is deceased (+1994)
My Great Grandfather was called Thomas Boardman but nobody knows anything about him.
Iíve looked on the Pals roll of honour & found a Thomas Boardman who served with the Accy Pals & who lived in Accrington who was sadly killed along with alot of other brave men on 1st July 1916 but donít know if Iím related to him.
Just been reading some of the old threads.
There was a Thomas Boardman who served in the Acc Pals who survived, he lived in Union St Acc.
