Barnsley, Old Mill, Wesleyan Reform Chapel, Roll of Honour

Source: @CavalierStamps on Twitter, 2 November 2016

Amongst the Readers Letters in the Memories of Barnsley magazine, Issue 41 - Spring 2017 there appeared a interesting article about the above postcard image. The author was an online vintage postcard dealer and had written in providing a transcription of the names.
The original of the image used above (which has been reduced in size for this website), which is still available on Twitter, is very large and clear and the details of the mens' names are easily read.

Where possible the full name of the man listed has been included in brackets and further information is linked if their name is shown in blue.
The main source of information, in brackets, for the names of those who survived was the 1918 Absent Voters' List for Barnsley.
