Barnsley War Memorial Gravestones

Many Fallen men are remembered on a family gravestone in this country even though they are buried or remembered overseas. A gravestone with an inscription to a man NOT buried in that place IS a War Memorial by the definition supplied by the IWM. The Barnsley War Memorials project is photographing as many of these stones as we can and recording their inscriptions. They provide valuable family information sometimes unavailable elsewhere, and, due to vandalism and the 'making safe' of many cemeteries (laying down of stones) this is an urgent task. So far (June 2018) we have found 386 of these memorials in the Barnsley Borough, but more are turning up every week as volunteers continue to search graveyards and cemeteries. --------------------- If you would like help adding information to men in this Community on Lives of the First World War I would be happy to help. ----- Linda Hutton IWM Volunteer
