Barnsley Conservative Club, Pitt Street, Barnsley

Barnsley Chronicle 26 July 1919
(thanks to Barnsley Archives)
This newspaper cutting from the Barnsley Chronicle in July 1919 refers to the unveiling of a photograph of the members of the club who served in the First World War.

Mention is made, unfortunately without names, of two old members who fell in the war.

The club also planned to have a Roll of Honour for the sons of members of the Club.

On a recent visit to the Barnsley Conservative Club on Pitt Street in the town centre enquiries were made, however nothing was known of any kind of memorial, photo or roll of honour.

Do you know where they might be?  

A newspaper report from the Sheffield Daily Telegraph (on Find My Past) relates the formal opening of the new premises for the Club on Pitt Street in September 1901.  This is presumably the same building the Club occupies now.
