The Longford Leader of the 20 November 1915 described recruitment for the war effort in Co. Longford (link below). A mention was made of Mr. Burrows, a bank clerk/cashier with the Bank of Ireland the town before enlisting. 

Although it is not absolutely certain, it is likely that this Mr. Burrows was Walter F. Burrows, who was included in the 1911 Census as a bank clerk and who returned to Co. Longford after the war and lived in Kenagh, and became a sub-agent for the Bank of Ireland and cashier at the Ballymahon branch; he was a member of Freemason's Lodge 96 from 18 November 1921. 

This Walter Frederick Burrows was born on the 8 June 1882 on Tritonville Road; he was the son of John Burrows, an accountant. The family had moved to Bushfield Terrace* in Donnybrook by 1901

Parents Names: Son of John Burrows and Isabella Jane (née Elliott)
Notes: *Despite the very high house number given on the 1901 census record for Bushfield terrace, it is is a short street with only eleven houses at that time, so it is likely the Burrows family lived in No. 4.
