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. http://www.barnsleywarmemorials.org.uk/2014/01/wombwell-war-memorial-st-marys-church.html
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.

Thanks,
Linda
Secretary BWMP
