Hi Francis,

Yes the J Page mentioned is probably your relative as there is a J W Page on the Wombwell War Memorial which we have been told is this man.
We currently only have one other Page on our list of over 4000 names of Barnsley men who fell in WW1 and that is a Archibald Page, probably from Royston.
