Darton Working Men's Club, Roll of Honour

Wells Street Working Men's Club in Darton (1918 map from Old Maps)

Newspaper research by BarnsleyHistorian.

Two mentions of this memorial have now been found - in the Barnsley Chronicle on 11 August 1923, see cutting below, and in a history of All Saints Church, in Darton, by James Dearnley, which can be found in Barnsley Archives.

Edit: March 2019
The Darton Working Men's Club & Institute Roll of Honour has been found stored in the Darton Liberal Club, which is indicated on the map above just below the church. 

It is very impressive, about 4' wide x 5' high in a heavy frame (for scale note the supporting hand at the top right). The Fallen men are listed in the scroll below the central panel.

The Club are hoping to be able to display it in one of their main rooms in the near future.
