Barnsley, Plumbers' Roll of Honour, Trades Club (newspaper report)

An ongoing search of the local newspapers in Barnsley is giving us evidence of many, now sadly lost war memorials and rolls of honour.

Barnsley Independent 27 March 1920
(thanks to Barnsley Archives)
From the Barnsley Independent of 1920 comes this report on the unveiling of an unusual Roll of Honour - one dedicated to Plumbers who served in the First World War.

There is still a Trades Club on Racecommon Road, but it is an newer building.  Did this and possibly other trade specific Rolls of Honour survive the move from one premises to another?

Where further information on a name has been researched by our volunteers it will be linked here  (look for the names in blue) to a page on this site or to an external site.

Although the report notes that there were 43 men on the Roll it only gives us the names of the two who lost their lives.
