Report in the Chester Chronicle 13 July 1918 regarding the death of John Faulkner

"RIFLEMAN FAULKNER KILLED
We regret to record the death of Rifleman John Faulkner King's (Liverpool) Regiment, only surviving son of Mr. and Mrs. J. Faulkner of Chorley Bank. Rifleman Faulkner, who was only 19, joined the army in June 1917, and was drafted to France in April this year. In two letters from his officers it is stated that Rifleman Faulkner was one of a party who were going to the baths, and they had just entered the building when a shell struck it. Rifleman Faulkner was severely wounded in the left knee and died soon after he was admitted into hospital. Great sympathy is felt for this family."
