Remembering some of the Bolton men who lost their lives in the Gallipoli Campaign of 1915

Albert Marsden

Albert was the son of Joseph Marsden b.1862 a coal hewer, and Martha Ann Marsden née Barnes b.1863.

He first appeared on the 1901 Census living at 18 School Street, Little Hulton, Lancashire with his parents and siblings Margaret Ellen b.1883, Mary Ann b.1885, Florence b.1888, Sarah Alice b.1890, William b.1893 and Nancy b.1896.

Albert's mother died in the summer of 1901 when he was just 4 years old.

In 1911 he was living at the same address in Little Hulton with his father (at that point listed as a housekeeper) and siblings Sarah Alice, William and Nancy.

Albert was a that point working as a colliery labourer - aged 13.

It appears that by the outbreak of war Albert was resident in Farnworth

His name appears on Farnworth War Memorial.
