There's 113 men listed in the Glasgow Roll of Honour as being from Argyle Street.

There may be other streets in Glasgow with more names than that, but I haven't checked.

It also depends on the size of the town/city.

I did a project to find the men how died in this small street and was amazed by the number. I know it was over 50 but for a wee street it must have been a very sad place when news arrived.

I checked for Gt Western Rd; Aberdeen which had loads but Gt Northern Rd; had much more as it was full of tenaments where as Gt Western Rd; is mostly terraced villas.
