In Memoriam - F W Barker



F.William (Willie) Barker


F.William (Willie) Barker  F.William (Willie) Barker Grave

Born in Hampsthwaite in 1892, "Willie" was the second son of Frederick and Margaret Barker of Barton House, Ripley. The 1911 census shows him living there with his widower father and four of his siblings. Like his father, he became a stone mason.

Having apparently emigrated to Canada some time after the taking of the 1911 census, he enlisted, as a Private, in the Royal Canadian Regiment with a service number of 477038. At enlistment on 23rd August 1915 (in Halifax, Nova Scotia) he gave his occupation as a miner and said he had previously served with the Calgary Rifles.

He was killed in France nearly a year after his younger brother Harold and died on the 9th December 1917.

Both he and Harold were cousins of Arthur Barker and Wilfred Stanley Barker.

(Click here to read the Barker Family History, here for the article "Tom Wright reflects upon the Barker family in Hampsthwaite" and here for Shaun Wilson's article on "Descendents of John and Grace Barker")

He is recorded as having been buried at XXX1.C.17A. at Etaples Military Cemetery, France.

As a soldier in the Royal Canadian Regiment, "Willie"'s medal record may be held in Canada but it is assumed he would be entitled to receive both the British War and Victory Medals in addition to any Canadian decoration
