Barnsley - St George's Church (BAR30) and men from the parish

A newspaper cutting was found listing 78 names read out in St George's Church in April 1919, on the occasion of the dedication of a chapel and two windows, one to memory of the men of the parish who fell in the war. St George's Church was demolished in 1993, so the window does not survive. The congregation did move to another building, Barnsley, St George's Church, York Street. There was an wooden inscribed memorial tablet with this list of names in the original church, however in the new church there is just a brass plaque generally mentioning all who gave their lives in the Great War. The Pogmoor area of Barnsley, two miles to the west, lay within this large parish in 1913. --------- http://www.barnsleywarmemorials.org.uk/2014/01/barnsley-st-georges-church-names-read.html ------------ A blog dedicated to the men named at St George's has been set up http://stgeorgesremembers.blogspot.co.uk/p/about.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
