Oaks Burial Locations, we have indexed all the burials in the Council Cemeteries

 

DearneHi Fionn,

I am the Secretary of the Dearne Memorial Group and have indexed all the burials in the Council Cemeteries www.cemeteries.org.uk.

I have attached 99 names of Oaks Fatalities buried in Barnsley Cemetery, I know there are 35 in Ardsley Churchyard and some in Monk Bretton, have you any info on where the others are buried?

There is an interest in providing a memorial to the men and boys who died in the disaster, any help would be appreciated.

Take Care

Headstone from Barnsley Cemetery as you can see it gives the Surnames of all three as COUGHLAN, but on the Burial Ledgers the Surnames are COCKLIN. It looks like someone has had a bad spelling day.
