Merry, Jill & Fiona,
thanks for the extra info, I posted the names as listed in today's paper. As well as some of the ages being a bit out, I note some of the names differ too (eg Stott/Scott).

Burkinshaw is a common surname in these parts. I suppose the only way the right family would come forward is if someone remembers their grandfather or other rellie talking about it.

I haven't the energy to start look for other articles at the mo, or the relevant birth & death registrations.

There is to be a memorial service in Barnsley next week to commemorate the event.
