A TEAM of locals who have set out to make a register of war memorials and honour the town's fallen soldiers are looking for help.

Linda Hutton, of Barnsley Road, Cudworth, is one of the researchers behind Barnsley War Memorials Project, which aims to produce a roll of honour to remember all those from the area who died fighting the First World War.

Linda said: "It's not just a matter of making a list. It's much more complicated than that.

"Not all the memorials are obvious as some are inaccessible. They're in churches, office buildings, working men's clubs and some are in private hands.

"When we started, we had a list of 74 memorials. That's now grown to more than 120.

"There's also a huge amount of work involved in checking the names for duplication. Lots of people are named on more than one memorial."

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the start of the war, but the project is likely to be finished by the anniversary of the end in 1918.

Volunteers are being sought for photographing, transcribing memorials and researching the soldiers.
