Note that this gravestone commemorates two soldiers, William Arthur Goulding and his brother Orlando.  As William is buried in this grave in Cudworth this gravestone is not a war memorial for him, but it is a war memorial for Orlando who lies in Sarigol Military Cemetery in Kriston, Greece.

My great grandmother Elizabeth Goulding died at the grand old age of 83 and not 63 as stated.

Thank you for this correction.

We took our transcriptions from the Barnsley Family History Society Monumental Inscriptions which are available online and on a CD from them and I can only apologise for not checking myself.
