Arthur Charlesworth Private 40419 2nd/4th Battalion West Riding Regiment 
Killed in Action 4 November 1918. He is buried in Ruesnes Cemetery in France, one of 15 men from his battalion who died on the same day. He had been mobilised in April 1918, aged 19 years 3 months. His home address was 14 Waltham Street and he was a miner, haulage hand. He was 5' 3.75" tall and weighed 113lbs (just over 8 stones). He declared his religion was Church of England. His records suggest he was sent overseas in early October and was killed a month later. His father had predeceased him, having died in 1913, so his mother was his next of kin. She was granted a pension of 5/- (five shillings) a month for life. She died in 1933 aged 65. 

There is no family citation on his CWGC gravestone and Arthur is not remembered on any war memorial in Barnsley that we are aware of.

Arthur was born in Monk Bretton early 1899, his parents were Walter and Catherine (Kate) nee Kelly who had married in 1889. Although all their children were born in Monk Bretton there are no records of them being baptised in St Paul's Church.

In 1911 the family lived at Hope Street, Klondyke, Monk Bretton (the area just before Cudworth bridge). Walter and Catherine had had 11 children in total but 3 had died young.  In 1918 Catherine and most of her children were living at 14 Waltham Street, off Sheffield Road, in Barnsley.   At least three of the children married in St Peter's or St John's church. His brother James, who had served in the Royal Naval Division, and who had been awarded the Military Medal for bravery, died in 1928 with heart problems, probably caused by his war service as he received a pension.

Arthur's brother Herbert, whose second marriage was to Violetta Pickersgill in 1926, named his son, born in 1928, Arthur.

Ernest Cherry

Jacob Chitoriski Private 5662 King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry He was killed in action on 11 November 1916.  Jacob was born in Barnsley in 1876, son of Jacob Chitoriski and Catherine  (nee Hofman) who were both originally from Prussia/Germany. Jacob, the father, was in England in 1861 as one of a company of musicians, he later became a banksman at a colliery.  The Chitoriski family had their children baptised at St George's Church and family marriages took place there and at St Peter's, yet for some reason Jacob's death during the war was not commemorated at either church, nor on any other memorial in Barnsley that we know of.

Jacob, the soldier, was called up in early 1916 and arrived in France in September.  Before enlistment he had worked at Barrow Colliery and lived at 19 Silver Street, Barnsley. His commanding officer and his sergeant wrote to his wife Alice, and the letters were published in the Barnsley Chronicle on 2 December 1916, along with a photo of Jacob and a Death notice from Alice. She also posted an In Memoriam notice the following year.  Jacob's father died in July 1917 and his mother in November 1918, both are buried in Barnsley Cemetery.  Alice received a pension of 15 shillings a week for her husband. She had no children, did not remarry and died in 1936 still living at 19 Silver Street. She is buried in Barnsley Cemetery. She had no children.

Edward Clarke Private 76338 Durham Light Infantry
Missing Presumed Dead 9 September 1918
Born in Barnsley in Q1 1899 to Sarah Jane (nee Guy aka Freeman) and Peter Clarke of Kelsey Terrace, off Cope Street. He had at least four older siblings. His brother Thomas Clarke, who was married, was Killed in Action on 3 April 1916 and is remembered on the St John's (Barebones) war memorial.
Edward's mother had been born to his grandmother Jane Guy before her marriage to John Freeman, hence the confusion of names. She had died in December 1899 within a year of his birth.
Edward lived with his grandmother Jane Freeman at 27 Cope Street in 1901 and 1911. His grandfather had died between 1901 and 1911. His grandmother died November 1911.  His address at enlistment in September 1917 was 35 Grace Street. He was 18 and a half years old, and only 5' 3.5" tall.
His father Peter Clarke, who had remarried in 1910 and lived at 35 Grace Street in 1911, was named on the Pension Cards, and Edward's step-mother Sarah claimed Pension for Edward. After she died in 1922 his father was refused the claim.
Two death notices appeared in the Barnsley Chronicle on 5 October 1918 from Tilda, Gertie and Lizzie, his 'sisters'. These were actually his aunts, sisters (or half sisters) of his mother Sarah Jane Guy or Freeman.

Joseph Dunlavey Private 60008 9th Battalion Prince of Wales's Own (West Yorkshire) Regiment
Died of Wounds 8 November 1918 in 53 General Hospital in Boulogne, France. He had a gun shot wound to the left leg and gangrene had developed. He had enlisted in April 1918, he was a Trammer in the pit. He lived on New Street when he enlisted, but this address was later amended to 6 Pall Mall, Barnsley, presumably as his father had moved house.
Joseph was born in late 1897, so he was 20 years old when he enlisted. His parents were Thomas and Mary (nee Butler), who had married at Ardsley in 1887. His mother died in 1910 aged 43, after having at large family. The spelling of the family name varies, look for Dunlavey, Dunlavy, and Dunleavey. Thomas Dunlavey, Joseph's father, was awarded a pension of 7/- for life. The pension records note that he later moved to Rupert Street in Bradford, however he does appear in the 1939 Register living with his married daughter on Bedford Terrace in Smithies, and that is the address given when he is buried in Barnsley Cemetery, in the same plot as his wife, in 1941.
Joseph is buried at Terlincthun British Cemetery, Wimille, France. Joseph's family posted a death notice in the Barnsley Chronicle on 23 November 1918, but he is not remembered on any memorial in Barnsley that we are aware of.
