Barnsley Chronicle 13 May 1922
(thanks to Barnsley Archives)

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.
