Tyldesley was a Catholic and many officers in his regiments were notable Lancastrian Catholics too. At Marston Moor the regiment was in the front line and had been heavily engaged, so much that they ran out of ammunition((//​The Civil Wars in Lancashire 1640-1660//,​ Stephen Bull 2009, Carnegie Publishing ISBN:​978-1-85936-191-7)).

-Tyldesley'​s Regiment of Foote (ECWS) field a red and white gyronny colour; Reid suggests green colours bearing numbers of small white crosses upon them ((//The Finest Knight in England//, Stuart Reid 1987, Partizan Press ISBN:​0946525390));​ there are two standards illustrated in Fahneen ​und Standarten ​ ((//Fahnen und Standarten Volume V//, Antje & Jurgen Lucht, Edition Peterstor ISBN:​978-3-946351-05-4)) a red and black gyronny design, and a green colour with a white cross device.+ 
 +While no clear descriptions of the flags of the regiment have been discovered, several theories have been proposed. ​Tyldesley'​s Regiment of Foote (ECWS re-enactors) field a red and white gyronny colour; Reid suggests ​that green colours bearing numbers of small white crosses upon them captured at Marston Moor were Tyldesley'​s ​((//The Finest Knight in England//, Stuart Reid 1987, Partizan Press ISBN:​0946525390));​ there are two standards illustrated in Fahnen ​und Standarten ((//Fahnen und Standarten Volume V//, Antje & Jurgen Lucht, Edition Peterstor ISBN:​978-3-946351-05-4)) (both of which are attributed to Peachey & Prince((//​ECW Flags and Colours 1: English Foot//, Stuart Peachey & Les Prince 1990, Partizan Press ISBN:​0946525846)) although there is no specific attribution of these colours to Tyldesley in their book) a red and black gyronny design ​which is described as captain'​s colour, and a green colour with a single ​white cross device ​described as a major'​s colour (Peachey and Prince merely noting that a pair of unknown green colours with Cross of St George canton bearing 4, and 5 white crosses were captured at Marston Moor).
