The 1st July 1916 was the first day of the Battle of the Somme when so many of the men of Barnsley in the 13th and 14th York and Lancaster Regiment (the Barnsley Pals) and others from many other Regiments lost their lives.


This book rests in a wood and glass case below the Memorial Window to the Fallen of both World Wars.   A page is turned every day to show the names of the men or women who fell.

The reflections from the windows made this memorial difficult to photograph clearly - as a result some of the names were a little unclear until we were able to arrange a further visit to check our list against the actual plaque.

Grimethorpe Men in the Great War Book

This useful book can be found on the Reference shelf in the Acorn Centre, High Street, Grimethorpe. 

It lists all the men on the Grimethorpe War Memorial outside St Luke's Church and on the Roll of Honour in Grimethorpe Working Men's Club on Brierley Road.  There are collected newspaper cuttings about the fallen men and information on where they are buried or remembered (if they have no known resting place).

Researched by Ronald Harpham and Thomas Hughes, this is the kind of project that should exist for every town's war memorial.

War Memorial Gravestones in Hoylandswaine Churchyard

During both the First and Second World Wars re-repatriation of the bodies of fallen servicemen and women was not usual.  The Unknown Soldier, entombed in Westminster Abbey represents those buried and commemorated overseas who could not come home.  For many families, deprived of a graveside at which to mourn, one solution was to add the name of their lost son (or daughter) to the family gravestone in their local churchyard.  

The Imperial War Museum's War Memorials' Archive defines a War Memorial as "any tangible object which has been erected or dedicated to commemorate those killed as a result of war, conflict or peacekeeping; who served in war or conflict; or who died whilst engaged in military service."  This includes gravestones which commemorate a casualty buried elsewhere.  There must be a clear statement on the memorial (or in a printed document such as a newspaper report from the time) that defines the commemorative purpose of the feature and reports its erection. The full wording of their definition can be found here.

Thus gravestones which include wording such as: died of wounds received in action, killed in action, fell in France, died on active service, reported missing in action, or even killed accidentally while on active service all count as War Memorials.  The wording is a "clear statement" that the purpose of recording that person's name on the gravestone is as a memorial.

Graves which are situated on the site of the burial of a casualty, such as Commonwealth War Graves, are not War Memorials, however the Barnsley War Memorials Project is also collecting their details for inclusion in the Barnsley Roll of Honour.

Hoylandswaine Churchyard has one Commonwealth War Graves Commission burial in addition to the two war memorial gravestones shown below.

Grimethorpe Cemetery has twelve Commonwealth War Graves Commission burials in addition to the five war memorial gravestones shown below.  A soldier killed in Northern Ireland in 1971 is also buried in the cemetery, Clifford Loring. There is also the burial of a soldier who died in 2004, Charles David Sellar.

New War Memorial for Bolton on Dearne and the Dearne Towns

Stonemasons at work in Bolton on Dearne cemetery (photo from Peter Davies)
Work has begun on the new memorial for the fallen of the Dearne towns.  The new memorial has been organised by the Peter Shields of the Dearne Memorial Group and Barnsley Cemeteries Project.  The project will cost between £25k and £30k.

Posters with lists of the names of the fallen have been distributed widely around the area asking for donations over the past year. 


Just one of the many posters appealing for donations
listing the names of the fallen of Bolton upon Dearne, Goldthorpe and Highgate

Mr Shields said: “The memorial is seven foot high. It consists of a five-sided obelisk made of Yorkshire stone with five black granite panels etched with gold lettering for WW1, WW2 and other conflicts. On the top of the obelisk is a bust of a soldier in reverse arms with head bowed.”

The memorial to 199 people from WW1 and 86 men from WW2 is being placed in Bolton-on-Dearne Cemetery and will be unveiled in August this year.

To donate visit www.cemeteries.org or email petershields184@hotmail.com

War Memorial Gravestones in Silkstone Churchyard

During both the First and Second World Wars re-repatriation of the bodies of fallen servicemen and women was not usual.  The Unknown Soldier, entombed in Westminster Abbey represents those buried and commemorated overseas who could not come home.  For many families, deprived of a graveside at which to mourn, one solution was to add the name of their lost son (or daughter) to the family gravestone in their local churchyard.  

The Imperial War Museum's War Memorials' Archive defines a War Memorial as "any tangible object which has been erected or dedicated to commemorate those killed as a result of war, conflict or peacekeeping; who served in war or conflict; or who died whilst engaged in military service."  This includes gravestones which commemorate a casualty buried elsewhere.  There must be a clear statement on the memorial (or in a printed document such as a newspaper report from the time) that defines the commemorative purpose of the feature and reports its erection.

Graves which are situated on the site of the burial of a casualty, such as Commonwealth War Graves, are not War Memorials, however the Barnsley War Memorials Project is also collecting their details for inclusion in the Barnsley Roll of Honour.

Silkstone Churchyard contains four Commonwealth War Graves.

Heritage Silkstone is an organisation which aims to preserve and further the understanding of the heritage of the Village of Silkstone.  It has a research room in All Saints Church in Silkstone with lots of information about the area. Visit their website for more details.

Silkstone Remembers is a partnership between the Barnsley War Memorials Project and Heritage Silkstone to remember the Fallen of Silkstone online.
