War Memorial Index

This list was initially based on the War Memorials Listed on the Imperial War Museum's War Memorial Archive for the Barnsley Area in November 2013.  At that time it contained 74 individual memorials, by September 2014 there were over 400 on our list.

This page is a work in progress and will be updated on a regular basis.
Most memorials have their own individual page which contains a photo and a list of the names on the memorial; simply select an area from the alphabetical list below to open the sub-index page.  Click on a memorial's own individual link to see more details.

Summaries for War Memorials in Cemeteries can also be found via the 'War Memorial Gravestones' tab above.
