Borough of Rawtenstall: The twelve Conscientious Objectors of 6th May 1916

This Community in no way records the actual number of Conscientious Objectors present within the Borough. Any future study on this subject, within a local context, should start with a review of the Rossendale Free Press 1916-1919 which devotes many column inches to the matter. (Rawtenstall Library microfiche records). This community collates those listed in the Rossendale Free Press of 6th May 1916 under an article headlined "CONSCIENTOUS OBJECTORS APPREHENDED - FAILURE TO REPORT UNDER MILITARY SERVICE ACT - PROCEEDINGS AT POLICE COURT - CONVEYED TO PRESTON UNDER ESCORT - SCENES IN THE STREETS" .
