Two great articles in Memories of Barnsley Spring 2014



The Spring 2014 issue of Memories of Barnsley includes two articles very relevant to the Barnsley War Memorials Project.  The magazine has produced articles about Barnsley soldiers from its earliest issues, and a search through the back numbers for information on the First World War, recruitment and individual soldiers is well worth the effort.  Back issues can be bought through their website and a full set can be browsed in Barnsley Archives.

Of particular interest this month is a piece by Brian Elliott on 'local miners who fought the war underground', digging tunnels beneath the enemy lines which would then be stuffed full of explosives and blown up as part of the opening moves of a battle.  Names mentioned include William Hackett from Nottingham, Denaby and Mexborough who served in the Royal Engineers and was awarded a posthumous VC.  More information on him can be found here.  Also mentioned are Corporal William Clarke of Wombwell who won a Distinguished Conduct Medal before being killed in 1915 (he is remembered on the Cortonwood War Memorial), Lance Corporal Samson Scargill of Wombwell who won the Military Medal in 1916 and Albert Shepherd of Royston who won our only Barnsley WW1 VC (remembered by a special plaque on the Royston War Memorial).

Later in the issue is a very detailed piece by Mark Green which tells the story of Benjamin Riley Green from Old Mill Lane in Barnsley.  Benjamin worked at Redfearn Brothers Glassworks before enlisting and is remembered on their war memorial tablet.

Mark follows Benjamin's story from his schooldays through his work at Redfearn's, marriage to Alice Woodcock and enlistment in the 14th York and Lancaster regiment (2nd Barnsley Pals) in April 1915. Benjamin was sadly killed on the first day of the Battle of the Somme, 1 July 1916, along with many other Barnsley men.  The story concludes with a poignant image of Benjamin's gravestone in France.

Benjamin was also remembered on the memorial tablet in St John's Church, Barebones, Barnsley, which is where he married in 1914.  Unfortunately this memorial no longer exists, however a list of names has been transcribed from a contemporary newspaper cutting reporting its unveiling in 1921.

We look forward to many more stories about Barnsley soldiers in the issues of Memories of Barnsley over the next few years.  Recommended!

I think that the placement of his name, in between two others at the centre, bottom of the memorial tablet suggests his name was added later.

The building where this memorial was erected is now a private swimming baths.  A contact has told us that the memorial tablet was removed to another Methodist Church, however, unfortunately it was broken during subsequent renovations to that church.  Research is ongoing to see if a list of names can be found in church records.

The newspaper cutting from the Barnsley Chronicle on 13 May 1922 notes that 26 men lost their lives out of 116 from the area who served.

Newspaper research by BarnsleyHistorian



Barnsley Chronicle 27 December 1919
(thanks to Barnsley Archives)
A blog post which investigated and identified the location of the club can be found here.  The map snip above shows both locations, on the left the later club, now a nightclub and on the right the club as it was on Market Street where it would have been in 1919.

This cutting from the Barnsley Chronicle (with thanks to Barnsley Archives) on 27 December 1919 reports the unveiling of a Roll of Honour, 'a panel upon which is inscribed the names of the members who served in H.M. Forces, 127 in number, the panel being enclosed in a massive oak frame.'  

Eight of the members had not returned, two had won the military medal.  

It sounds very decorative, 'The work on the panel is of a unique character.  It is of a patented production known as Mosartile, which is prepared after the manner of a stained glass window, by which wonderful colouring effects are secured, yet at the same time the work is imperishable and enduring for all time'.

An earlier Roll of Honour, referred to in the article, was reported in the Barnsley Chronicle in January 1918.  That RoH listed 86 men of whom 4 had been killed at that date.  We see from the 1919 cutting that the final toll was 127 serving and 8 killed.

A list of 79 names from the earlier memorial was published in the Barnsley Chronicle on 26 January 1918 and is reproduced here.

Barnsley Chronicle 20 November 1915
(thanks to Barnsley Archives)

According to the book Ardsley and Stairfoot Revisited by Tony Heald and Michael Chance, the Working Men's Club opposite the Church was not opened until the early 1920s so this newspaper cutting from 1915 must relate to the club at Stairfoot.  The building is currently a restaurant and wine bar.


Two Rolls of Honour "in handsome frames" were displayed in Ardsley Working Men's Club in November 1915 - the roll already contained 100 names members of the Institute out of over 500 from Ardsley who had joined.  The club undertook to keep a record of "the careers of the township's sons whose names appeared on the roll".

This newspaper cutting lists 19 men from the firm of Needham Bros and Brown Ltd, of Pontefract Road who have presumably enlisted.  It is only the end of 1915 - more could have already volunteered and more will have followed them into service as conscription took effect the following year.  Research has yet to be done to discover which of these men returned home and which did not.  We do not know if this memorial or any other memorial for the firm still exists.

The window is on the north side of the church.  It is difficult to get a photograph of all from ground level of it due to the height of the window and adjacent pillars.  

The inscription reads, ' A. M. D. C. In loving memory of John Geoffrey Fallas killed in action 19th Sep 1918, aged 19, interred at Ablain St Nazaire.  R. I. P.'
