Not Forgotten - Men not Named on Barnsley War Memorials - A

This is a page for Barnsley connected men and women who fell in the First World War who are not remembered on any War Memorial in the Barnsley Borough discovered so far.  It is provided to assist relatives to find the places where their First World War serviceman is remembered.

We currently (Nov 2021) have 3800 names on our Master List of servicemen and women who lost their lives in the war, who were born in Barnsley or who lived in Barnsley when they enlisted, or who are remembered on a memorial in the Barnsley area. Of these approximately 700 (these numbers are regularly updated as research continues) are not named on any memorial in this area, and the names of a number of others have only recently been commemorated in the Barnsley Borough, either on completely new memorials like the Somme Centenary Artwork, or as the result of research by local groups, such as the additional panels in Hoyland. 

We have discovered that some of the men apparently omitted from commemoration in Barnsley immediately after the war, ARE named on memorials outside the Barnsley MBC, and where we have sufficient evidence to prove this we have indicated the places and the reasons we think lie behind these other commemorations. 

The First World War Roll of Honour produced by the Barnsley War Memorials Project (BWMP) and published in November 2018 contained the names of 3,784 men and women, along with 1,990 photographs. An online version can be accessed by clicking the FWW Roll of Honour tab above.

It has been our intention to record all Barnsley war related deaths including the deaths of volunteers, nurses and war workers. 

Please let us know if you have a Barnsley connected relative who lost their life in the war whom you cannot find on any of our webpages (use the search box above), or in the BWMP folders in Barnsley Archives.

Contact details can be found on the About tab above.

The names of those from Barnsley who lost their lives in connection with the Great War 1914 - 1919 will be "Not Forgotten" by us or their families.

If there are words in blue it means there is a link to further information, for example on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, and/or to the solder's 'Life Story' on the Imperial War Museum's Lives of the First World War website. This is sadly no longer interactive, however the IWM have made the archived version freely available so photographs and information uploaded during the Centenary can still be viewed.

As there are so many names the list has been split into sections - click on the letter of the surname that you want to search or use the search box at the top left of the screen.
