This memorial was researched, transcribed and photographed by Peter Marsden and many others who are acknowledged in the Blacker Hill document.  Peter has asked us to say, “That the information contained is in memory of those named on the memorial and as a result of the kind sharing of other websites and those acknowledged individuals who have helped build this local record of those who died and the location of their cemeteries for those who wish to visit”. 

An electronic copy of the Blacker Hill information can be downloaded here.

A folder containing this information can be found in Barnsley Archives.

Newspaper research by BarnsleyHistorian

The memorial was refurbished in 2013 and the black plaque added with extra names for the First World War and the Second World War entry.

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.
