Barnsley - Holgate Grammar School Old Boys Memorial Plaque - BAR11

This large plaque, now on display in the Cooper Gallery in Barnsley, lists 76 names of old boys and two Masters who fell in the Great War. The tablet was unveiled in November 1928. http://www.barnsleywarmemorials.org.uk/2014/01/barnsley-holgate-grammar-school-old-boys.html ------ A book about these men was published in early 2016, 'Great Sacrifice' by Jane Ainsworth http://www.helion.co.uk/published-by-helion/great-sacrifice-the-old-boys-of-barnsley-holgate-grammar-school-in-the-first-world-war.html ---------- If you are having trouble adding information to men in this Community on Lives of the First World War I would be happy to help. ----- Linda Hutton IWM Volunteer barnsleyhistorian@gmail.com
