2nd Battalion, Royal Dublin Fusiliers (British Army)
07/10/1918 (Killed in Action)
James Edward Lavery was born about 1884. The CWGC record Private James Edward Lavery as the son of Joseph and Mary Lavery of Lagan Street, Belfast. It seems reasonable to assume that the Joseph and Mary listed are the two people referred to by the CWGC. The most likely possibility is that Mary was not his mother and his father remarried. James Lavery enlisted in Cookstown. Private James Edward Lavery was serving with the 2nd Battalion of the Royal Dublin Fusiliers when he was killed in action on Monday 7th October 1918.
