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.

David Walling was my great uncle by marriage (to my g-auntie Bertha Sheldrick) so any other members of his family would not be my blood relatives.

I understand that my lot were fairly 'lucky' (if that's the right word) in that my maternal and paternal grandfathers and other great uncles survived.

At least, that's what I understood until I examined Peter's material and discovered the surname Dent, and found that he was probably my grandmother's brother or cousin. How soon our family's history can get forgotten. 

I'm also looking for the surname Ellison - someone who appears in my family tree but had no descendents, so possibly was killed in the war. No dates available but if he shows up here, I can complete a little more of the puzzle.Go to Top of Page

Cally, when I was kid there were at least three families of Wallings in the immediate area, Clifford St. Bank St. & Turner St. also there was a Mr and Mrs. Dent. possibly Joe Dent and his wife, may have been Turner St?. The name Ellison also rings a bell, I will ask my much senior Sister.

I'm on shaky ground here as I have no actual documented proof, but as I understand it, my g-grandfather Thomas [?] Dent built the odd-numbered side of Turner Street for all his offspring - a house each - and so my grandmother got No. 5 where my dad was born in 1914. Next door but one was where his cousin lived - Sooie. She was a postwoman in WWII. Also on the row was Tizzie Dent who had a milliners in Newtown (again, I think.)

But I digress from the Topic subject. Apologies.Go to Top of Page

I haven't posted in this thread until now but I would like to say well done and thank you to Peter for his efforts in this. I can see that this will be very useful as a quick reference for anyone needing to find one of our local lads who was lost as a consequence of the First World War.

I will be visiting a handfull of these lads shortly down at Ghyll Church when I do my annual distribution of remembrance crosses on the graves of those interred there.

The enormouse size of the carnage and overall losses on the battlefields at the time dictated that the vast majority of those that lost their life were buried either on or in close proximity to the battlefield. Of course many thousands also have no known grave and from time their remains are still being discovered from time to time in the fields of Northern France and Belgium. The few that made it home are generally the ones who were repatriated with extensive wounds and then died later and so could be handed over to their families for burial in a family plot or buried with a headstone provided by the Commonweath War Graves Commission.

The CWG headstones are easy to spot as they are a uniform design. The lads that were laid to rest with other members of their family are a little more difficult to find in the Churchyard and Cemetery. I found one more that I did not know about last year. I may well find others to add to my records for the future.
