Men of Rotherham memorial plaques (photo taken 29 Aug 2023)

This memorial has been recorded and transcribed and attached to the Barnsley & District War Memorials site because a significant number of men who were born within the Barnsley Borough were commemorated on this memorial. It is hoped that this will make it possible for visitors to the site to search for their Barnsley relatives in one place. As far as we are aware only the War Memorials Register currently includes a transcription of the full names list, and that does not display the regimental headers to each group of men. These will be included here for the assistance of visitors in identifying their relatives.

Individual panels photographed by either BarnsleyHistorian or Nigel Croft on 29 Aug 2023.
The polished panels made photographing difficult but by combining pictures taken from various angles and with different camera settings we were able to fully transcribe the memorial.

Close up of the central inscription. Click image to view larger version.

To The Glory of God / In Proud and Tender Memory of their only child / Leslie Peech Aizlewood MC AFC Major Royal Air Force / who after a career of signal & distinguished service / gave his life for his country on 29th September 1918 / and In Honoured Memory of All The Officers & Men / from the Town of Rotherham who fell in The Great War / 1914 - 1918 / Their name liveth for evermore / This monument is erected by Albert Percy Aizlewood J P & Florence Shaw Aizlewood / his wife of Blenheim House Rotherham

Where further information has been discovered for any of these men it will be linked (look for names underlined and in blue) to a page on this site or to an external site.  In this way we try to avoid duplication and encroaching on the research of other groups and individuals.
Barnsley born men are indicated by a * (work still in progress) .
