Not Forgotten - I, J, K, L



George Thomas Illingworth

Reuben Ingamells

Richard Ingham


Albert Kipling Jackson Private S/40372 Cameron Higlanders
Killed in Action 15 November 1917 in Belgium during the Third Battle of Ypres.
He was born in Worsbrough Bridge, Barnsley Q1 1894.
His mother, Annie Kiplin, known as Jackson, was born in Sheffield in 1871. Her mother, Mary Jane Kiplin, married Joseph Jackson after Annie's birth and Annie took his name for a while. The family lived in Sheffield, and moved to Worsborough about 1881. Annie had two boys in Worsborough, Albert and Charles, and by 1901 she and the boys were in Attercliffe, Sheffield living with her step-grandfather Henry Jackson. That must be where she met Robert H Dawes who she married in Carbrook, Sheffield in 1901 as Annie Kipling. The Dawes family with Albert and Charles were living in Birdwell, Barnsley in 1911. Albert was a Pony Driver in a pit.

Calculation from the War Gratuity paid to Annie Dawes suggests that Albert enlisted in March 1916. He would have been 22 years of age. He has no known grave and is remembered on the Tyne Cot Memorial. He is not named on any memorial in Barnsley that we know of.  After the war his mother, who by then had moved to Batley, claimed a pension for Albert. She was granted 8/- (eight shillings) a week. 

We discovered that Albert is remembered on the Batley war memorial and at Batley Working Men's Club. According to the Batley's Roll of Honour website, where there is a photo of Albert and a downloadable biography, Albert was a cinema operator at the Batley Co-op Hall before he enlisted.

Father cohabited, in 1911, with Kate Seddons whom he married in 1917 after the death of her husband Reuben Seddons whilst in the army. Neither Herbert nor Reuben are remembered on a memorial in Barnsley. Herbert's father died in 1923, but he had a number of surviving brothers and sisters. There does not seem to be a close connection to any Church of England church (few records of marriages and baptisms) .
