I realise that this may be too late as I have had great difficulty in registering on the Forum. But I am interested in finding out more about my grandfather Samuel Cregeen, born 1865, at Port Erin, IOM. On my mother's birth certificate, b. 24 January 1916, it states that he was a Private in the 5th Kings Liverpool, no service no. I'm afraid. The family were living at the time at 55, Toft Street, West Derby. I have found some references to a Samuel Creegan, but there are not enough details on these records to confirm that he is one and the same person, except that he is recorded as being at one time in the 5th Kings Liverpool Regiment.
