Barnsley - The Rest of the Somme

The Battle of the Somme lasted 141 days. In that time over 800 Barnsley connected men fell. It is too easy just to consider July 1916; this community aims to remember the men who died between 1 August and the official end of the Battle on 18 November 1916. Men continued to die from wounds sustained in earlier stages of the battle for many more months and years and they are remembered in our other Barnsley Communities (Try putting Barnsley in the Search box above and choose Communities) -------- Please help by adding your own photos and stories to your relatives. -------- If you are having trouble adding information or need any advice I will be happy to give assistance. ---------------- 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
