Barlick Born Old Salt

As a result of the research for the other topic "Barlick and Cravens Part in the Great War" some interesting material has emerged First and foremost are the names of Men from Barlick who are not included on the Town War Memorial. Just what qualifies a name to appear on there is difficult to establish and I started out with a list of 39 possibles, this is now down to 37 as two names are indeed already on the monument. "To err is human". There are five that meet my criteria, four born and resident in Barlick and one born in Salterforth and it is possible that he lived in Barlick, he may be on the Salterforth Memorial, this I have to check. One of the five is a Young Man who died in the canal at Skipton, The Coroners verdict was suicide, but the mans state of mind could not be established, he was still a Soldier, Born, and a resident of Barlick and buried at Ghyll I believe that whatever the cause he has a right to recognition. I have had a great deal of help and support in my endeavours from Mr Chris Foster of CPGW and I feel sure he will have a valuable input to make with this new topic. I would also like to hear what the Townsfolk have to say, and with the possibility of a publication in the future I may have a word with a contact at the BET Newspaper, somebody out there may know something useful, and so to the first five names and unedited details:-

BARNOLDSWICK SOLDIER'S DEATH IN MESOPOTAMIA
The death occurred on August 7th, in Mesopotamia, of Private Edmondson Pickles, Northumberland Fusiliers, from heart failure. The sad news was conveyed in a letter from the War Office to his relatives in Barnoldswick last week end. Private Pickles, who would have been 20 years of age next month, was a son of the late Mr. Edmondson Pickles. He enlisted a year ago, and went out to join the Mesopotamian Expeditionary Force at Basra six weeks before Christmas. In a letter to his sister, received the Thursday before his death, he stated that he was in the best of health, having had a successful recovery from malaria, and that he was expecting being transferred to India in October. His elder brother, Private Jack Pickles, was killed in France in May, 1917

I have had an initial search around the site that Chris posted in the other thread. The first stage is to establish who is actually responsible for the monument. There was no formal process in place after the First World War to establish responsibility for ongoing maintenance or ownership of a given monument.

The UK National Inventory of War Memorials does not list a responsible body for Barlicks Cenotaph.

Checking on Pendle Councils website does not confirm responsibility either although I would assume that this would be the case. It may well come under the Parks and Recreation service as this service does say it has responsibilities for the Cemeteries and a number of War Memorials although it does not list which ones.

Pendle has not yet responded to a request from the War Memorials Trust for a contact person or "War Memorial Officer".

The War Memorials(Local Authorities Powers Act of 1923 and subsequent ammendments) allows a Local Authority to add names to a monument whether it "owns" it or not.

There may be more information available online but I have'nt found it yet.

I will check with the council next week to see if I can get a definitive answer and if they are the responsible party, if they have any existing policies in place to cater for additions.

Ian I posted this message on the other thread and it seems you're ahead of me but I shall my post here for matter of interest.

Yes a good idea Peter.
Ian, I don't  think the criteria is too strict regarding  guidelines on who's name should or should not go on a particular memorial . I've seen individual names (same person) appear on more than one memorial from differant districts .

From CPGW. Pte R H Richardson, born in York, but during the war was residing in Crosshills. He had for a time worked at Malham tarn . His Great Grandson contacted me about 2 or 3 yrs and asked me why he wasn't named on the Settle memorial .(I should point out that his name may have appeared on a memorial in Crosshills but unfortunately the memorial  as been lost or destroyed. I  I advised him to contact the council and forward on the memorial trust website to them. The council met and it was agreed that Richardsons name should go on the memorial .The trust would pay half the costs and the council the other half. I seem to remember that the cost of adding his name was something like £1500. The council at this point gulped a little but I'm pleased to say they went ahead with it.

http://www.cpgw.org.uk/viewDetail.cfm?sID=330-04&view=main

Added name 
http://www.cpgw.org.uk/craven_war_memorial.cfm?sID=330-04&mCode=SETTLE&pID=3&zoom=1


I would advise you  to set up a small  committee of like minded people and call yourselves something like the " The Friends of Barlick War Memorial  Group "  and when you've decided who's names should be added to the memorial, contact your local council. If you can get the attention of a sympathetic councillor it will help your cause a great deal  . Send him/her the link to the War Memorials Trust site and with any luck they'll take it forward to be brought up at  a council meeting  for discussion . I think the only stumbling block would be the cost of the project given the present economic climate .

Regards
Chris

The Earby History Society was involved in a project with the Parish Council to add names to the Earby War Memorial a couple of years ago. Bob Abel did a lot of research, it might be worth contacting him to find out how it all worked.

Just moved this from the other thread as well Chris. I see Peter has replied in there as well.

Lots of interesting information on the site you posted. I would agree that cost will almost certainly be a major factor in any potential additions. I'm going to check with the council to see if if they have any existing policies that may impact on any proposal.

I have just found the name of a lad who was killed, and whilst his Brothers name is on the memorial, his is not, and they both lived at the same address. In regard to the cost, I have an idea, if it were acceptable, in my capacity as an engineer, and as a fully qualified signwriter, I could design a panel with a metal frame. If the names were written in reverse on a rectangle of unbreakable glass and then sealed into a metal frame, it could be bolted to the bottom of the obelisk just above the existing WW1 names. Cost to the council would be the glass, the frame and the fitting, the rest I would gladly do for nowt, or a free spot for my ashes at Ghyll when the time comes! I imagine that this would be better as a last resort, if we get the local paper involved and get community interest, there could be another way if the powers that be cannot or will not cough up. At the end of the day, my offer still holds, I was lucky, my Dad  and Grandads and Great Uncles all came home alive, Many were not so fortunate.

There is no established criteria as to what is included or indeed the style of script on any given memorial. This was left at the time to the individual communities to decide. However for existing monuments it is advised that any existing design and style is adhered to in all circumstances.

The information on the War Memorial Trust site goes on to recommend that a suitably qualified restoration / conservation practice is consulted with regard to appending additional names to existing monuments.

Not wishing to detract from your skills or ideas Peter, there are a number of specific hoops that we would have to jump through.

I think we first need to establish what the current situation is for the Barlick memorial. Who has responsibility and any existing agreed practices or policies that are in place.

Sally has been on both Pendle and Barnoldswick Town Council, she is fairly sure that Pendle have, or have adopted responsibility for the Barlick Memorial and that it may well be a good idea to get the Town Council onboard with any proposal that we may formulate in the future.

I will make enquiries from the Borough Council next week and report in this thread what I find out. I will also contact Bob at Earby and ask him for his experiences with the Earby Memorial as Wendy suggests.
