Request for information about Robert Evans (killed in action 22nd July 1916)

We have had the following request for information about Robert Evans, who is commemorated on our War Memorial:

"This is relating to the entry for Private Robert Evans, killed in action in 1916. His brother, Humphrey, was my grandfather.

Humphrey also enlisted and served in France and his son Robert was in Ireland at the time of the Easter Uprising. He died in 1928 and is buried in Hollinwood Cemetery, Oldham.

Are there any members of this Evans family still in the area, or elsewhere, who would be interested in information on Humphrey Evans?

Or, to put it another way, have I any relations I don't know of?

David Nuttall"
