Stainborough, Wentworth Castle Roll of Honour, nr Barnsley

War Memorials Online listing

War Memorials Archive listing

The newspaper cutting added here refers to the plaque in St James' church which was dedicated in 1921 and has now been transferred to Silkstone Church.  We are still searching for documentary evidence supporting this wartime Roll of Honour.  However, note the list of names at the end of the cutting -  who are not all men named on this RoH - suggesting it was especially for the Wentworth Castle staff rather than a list of local men.  The names may have been added chronologically, as they are not in alphabetical order.

Where further information on a name has been researched by our volunteers it will be linked here (look for the names in blue) to a page on this site or to an external site.
