Khaki in colour and sombre in content. "Cravens Part in the Great War", there will not have been many households in Barlick and what was then a much larger Craven Area, that did not have at least one copy of this book. In my immediate Family there would have been at least four and I still have two of them, albeit that one is with my son on Anglesey. Over the years I have seen them at jumble sales, in second hand shops and in piles of rubbish for disposal, even left behind when a house has been vacated. They will have turned up all over the place, I have come across them in Wales, the Isle of Wight and Hampshire, the two that I have belonged to my Father and Maternal Grandfather.
Many years ago I went through one of them from cover to cover noting those from Barlick who had given their lives in the service of King and Country, my notes are long gone so I am going to do it again, a few pages at a time, but this time I will include other local places within an approximate seven mile radius, Gisburn, Foulridge, Earby and so on. I will post my findings on here with the name, address and a precis of other details, as some are quite extensive, each name is to have the page number for my reference so that if anyone wants further information, I can soon find it. In a good number of cases there is a photograph, these I will copy and post in groups of ten at suitable intervals. In the book there are 391 pages so I will use a few abreviations hopefully all self explanatory, ie, KIA:- Killed in Action. MPD:- Missing presumed Dead. DOW:- Died as a result of Wounds, and one that is all too frequent, DFD:- Died from Disease or Illness.
One Man was responsible for the existance of these books and that was Mr, Walter Morrison Esq, JP of Malham Tarn who put forward the idea of the book and defrayed the entire cost.
There is quite a bit about the war itself up to page 50, including the Rohilla Tradgedy, then comes the dreadful list of those who did not come home, and so it is that on page 57 we find the first of Barlicks Sons, and is as follows:-

2nd Lieut Harry Thornton Pickles, 3rd Bn Duke of Wellington's (West Riding) Regiment (SR) second son of Mr Stephen Pickles JP, CC, Of Raysgill Barnoldswick KIA 26th April 1916 aged 26. P57.

In these first ten pages the extent of family loss is made very clear for it was in the Village of Carleton nr Skipton that this comes up:-

P53,  Lieut. Anthony E.K. Slingsby, 1/6th Duke of Wellington's (WR) Regiment, Son of Mr and Mrs J A Slingsby Carla Beck Carleton. KIA France 14th July 1915. Aged 26.
P57,  Captain Arthur Morris Slingsby, MC 56th Punjabi Rifles,  2nd son of Mr and Mrs J A Slingsby KIA 8th March 1916 in Mesopotamia. Aged 30.
P58.  Lieut. Stephen Slingsby of HMS Defence, 4th son of Mr and Mrs J A Slingsby. KIA in North Sea June 1916. Aged 24.
This out of a total of five sons all serving.
 
Lothersdale is the next local Village with on P62.  Lieut Alec Wilson, 1st Herefordshire Regiment, Son of Mr and Mrs F J Wilson JP of Lothersdale. KIA 26th March 1917 in Egypt.
P54, Lieut. The Hon, C. A. Lister Royal Marines, Hood Battalion, Only surviving son and heir of Lord Ribblesdale of Gisburne Park DOW 28th August 1915. Elder Brother killed in 1904 in Somaliland.
Greystones, Gisburn.  Lieut. George Proctor, Lancs Fusiliers, only son of Mr and Mrs Thomas Proctor. KIA 7th April 1918 aged 24. P70.
Marton is on P73, Which Marton is not clear,  2nd Lieut, Joseph Bryan Bushby South Staffs Regiment, son of Mr and Mrs Joseph Bushby, Schoolhouse Farm Marton, DOW, 4th October 1918 aged 26.

BARNOLDSWICK - KILLED A MONTH AFTER HIS RETURN
Signaller Walter Bannister, East Lancs. Regiment, was killed by a shell on October 27th just a month after returning to the Front from leave. He was 36 years of age and leaves a wife and two children living at 6 Ethel Street, Barnoldswick. An officer writes to Mrs. Bannister:- "Your husband was one of my best signallers, and was a great favourite with both myself and his comrades because of his cheerful disposition and willingness under all conditions." Private Bannister was a native of Nelson, and a well-known amateur football player. He formerly worked at Messrs. Slater Edmondson's, Moss Shed.

1918
On the night of the 28th/29th October two platoons of 'B' Company re-inforced 'D' Company and extended the bridgehead north of Semperies some 200 yards to the East. Two patrols were sent out during the afternoon of the 29th to gain touch with the enemy who was reported by aircraft to have evacuated the high ground in front. It soon became evident that this was not the case, as both patrols could make little headway, and were forced to withdraw under a smoke barrage. The remainder of 'B' Company re-inforced the bridgehead during the night of the 29th/30th and thus two Companies were across the River Rhonelle.
[Walter Bannister was killed in the Battalion's last action of the war on the 30th October 1918.]

Able Seaman Barlow is currently the second on my list for the churchyard.

I have just checked through your extracts Peter for the first name that I have on my list, John Bolton who is interred in a family plot and I have marked as a "possible".

I cannot find him which lends a little weight to the possibility that he may not be a casualty of war but may wel have perished at sea. I will point out the headstone to you on Sunday it was this design that led me to mark him as a a possible. From memory it has a naval look to it and a second opinion would be useful.

All of the other churchyard recipents apart from recent veterans that I mark have CWG headstones and are easy to spot. I feel sure that there may well be some in family plots in the churchyard that I have not found yet.

The Naval ones have a "Fouled Anchor" emblem, I have pics of all the ones that I have seen to date, but this is one of the areas I have yet to sort out. Currently working my way through "P" and I have found another today that is not on the town memorial. Ther is a great deal of info on J Bolton and he is listed as Non CWGC burial. His details will appear on here shortly.

I've been making a few enquiries in regards to Wilfred Anker and if he would be entitled to a CWGC headstome . There is a certain amount criteria that needs to be met before the CWGC agree to the placement of a headstone .

Category One:- Commonwealth men and women who were still in military service at the time of their death. These personnel automatically qualify for commemoration provided they died within the qualifying dates as follows:
First World War - 4th August 1914 to 31st August 1921
Second World War - 3rd September 1939 to 31st December 1947
The location of their death and the cause of death are immaterial to their qualification. They could have been killed in action, died of wounds, died of illness or by accident, died due to suicide or homicide or suffered judicial execution. CWGC treats all casualties equally and all must be commemorated under the terms of their Royal Charter.
Category Two:- Personnel who had been discharged from or retired from the military before their deaths during the same qualifying periods of an injury or illness caused by or exacerbated by their service during the same qualifying period. These cases qualify only if it is PROVEN to the authorities' satisfaction that death was service attributable.
Wilfred falls into Category two

I took a look on Ancestry and found Wilfred's medical record ,and this is what was written .

"Originated 11th July 1916 France. Reported sick with cardiac palpitation & swelling of legs. Found to be suffering from mitral regurgitation, his condition has not materially improved since he has been in hospital. He is suffering from effects of dilitation of the heart and mitral regurgitation. The apex beat (?) is one inch outside the nipple line. He is breathless on exertion. The result of active service overexertion and strain. Permanent"

Wilfred was discharged from the army 06/10/16 and died sometime in August of 1918 .

I've been in touch with someone who runs a project called In From the Cold  http://www.infromthecold.org/about_us.asp 
and he said that Wilfred's case is worth persuing. What we need however is a death certificate to prove that he died of the condition stated on his army medical record . The death certificate can easily be sourced online.

Before I go any further with this I need to establish one or two things. Namely are their any of Wilfred's relatives still in the area and if so would they be happy for me to proceed? If no family members can be traced would the forum members who have taken an interest in The Barlick's  Part In The Great War have any objection to take things a little further . And finally  can we be sure that  the right plot can be confirmed. ?
I welcome your feedback .

Sorry to hijack your thread thomo, but it seemed the best place to post it


Regards

Chris

I do not know if Wilfred has any living relatives. Travis who has been looking for Wilfred for some time may be able to shed some light on this aspect and I am sure he will contribute when he sees this. I will be seeing him on Sunday anyway and no doubt we will have a talk about the possibilites.

My approach to Pendle Borough Council for the location of the grave came about from reading another thread on the site where another member was looking for relatives buried in the cemetery and had approached the council back in 2004 and been told that a £30.00 search fee was required to access the data. I wondered if this was still the case or whether the data had become available in the public domain such as the local libraries. It was only a phone call away and well worth asking the question. I was very pleased to find out that queries against the data held by the council are now answered without incurring a charge.

The information I received for Wilfreds grave is from the official burial register which is now held by the Parks and Cemeteries department at the council. It, along with photographs of all the headstones in council maintained sections of the local cemeteries are held for health and safety and maintenance purposes. The record for Wilfred contained the grave owner, section and grave reference for the plot and full 6 digit Easting and Northing National Grid Reference based on the Ordinance Survey map extract for the site. I think that this should be enough to meet that particular aspect of an application.

I for one would support establishing a CWG marker for Wifred if we can meet all the criteria,  with the consent of any surviving relatives of course if they can be traced.

I do not see any input as hijacking Chris and this is certainly a case of the more hands, the lighter the task. I posted a phone No a couple of pages back for the council, its 01282 661661, is that the one Ian? I find now whilst going through all of the names for the second time, that I knew some of the families when I was younger, and in respect of one individual, I recall working for a "Miss Birley" at Thornton in the early sixties, she would have been the widow of one of the Men we are concerned with, small world.

Yes Peter that's the front desk at Pendle Borough Council. Switchboard puts you through to the correct department when you state what information you need.

I forgot to comment on the In From The Cold Project link you included in your post Chris. What a worthwhile project and very aptly named for the thousands that must still lay unrecognised. I have bookmarked it and will have a good look round the site later.
