Thiepval Memorial - Barnsley Men

Thiepval Memorial - Barnsley Men

A Community constructed in reponse to the launch of the Shrouds of the Somme website (http://shroudsofthesomme.com/). Adding the names and details of the 445 Barnsley men Remembered on the Thiepval Memorial, and tagged in this Community, to the 'Shrouds' website seems to be duplication of the work already carried out on this site, although the publicity around the project will hopefully attract contributions from fresh sources. 216 of these men fell on 1 July 1916, the First Day of the Battle of the Somme. Working on this number of men on both sites would be a lot of extra work, for which I just don't have sufficient time. If someone else would like to add these men to 'Shrouds' and you use the photos from the Barnsley newspapers shown on Lives, please give the correct credit to Barnsley Archives who kindly gave the Barnsley War Memorials Project permission to use them. It would be nice if you could put a link to the story here into the 'Shrouds' entry too, as the records on Lives can continue to be improved by other users, gathering other photos, evidence and stories together in one place. ---- You can contact me at barnsleyhistorian@gmail.com if you require any assistance adding further information to the Life Stories of the men here on Lives of the First World War. ------- Linda Hutton - IWM Volunteer
