Here are some biopics etc of other men from round and about the low villages, Barrow, Goxhill, Thornton Curtis, New Holland and the farms. As these places are too small to warrant their own pages, and the fact that many of them came to Barton to train as territorials (thought New Holland lads would have most likely enlisted in Hull, I thought it only appropriate to include them as well-in fact it only seemed fair.
There is a plethora of information on the War Memorials websites. Nobody else has done it as far as I know except for the boys of the Roll of Honour lads who have done an amazing job. So please note, this section is incomplete. I appreciate your patience. Contributions are very welcome.
For further information on the Barton villages please refer to this website the link shown below.
