      Hi Trevor
      340 men and boys from Conisbrough and Denaby lost their lives in the Great War. We picked out 100 for whom we had stories, photographs and location of graves. The tributes that Sarah and Craig are laying contain this information.
      We are showing on the site all the information we have researched about everyone including the people who fought and survived. If you have any more information we shall be only too pleased to include it on the site.

    Found another! Little bit more complicated as he died as a Canadian on the 14th October 1918, he was a Private in the Canadian Army, 15th (Reserve) Btn Cdn Inf (Sask. Regiment).
    He was born in Conisbrough and moved to Canada when his parents emigrated there. He was brought to England and put in a camp which was known to have the pandemic flu which killed him and a large number of comrades. an even bigger waste of lives than being killed on the front!
