In Memoriam - H Barker



Harold Barker



Harold Barker Harold Barker Grave


Born in Hampsthwaite, Harold was the fourth son of Frederick and Margaret Barker of Barton House, Ripley and the 1911 census shows him living there with his widowed father and four of his siblings. He was then working as a farm labourer.

Aged 19, he enlisted in Harrogate on the 25th February 1915 with a service number of 16766 and joined, as a Private, the 9th Battalion of the York and Lancashire Regiment. He was only 5'3" in height.

He was posted to France in March 1916 and wounded in the thigh shortly afterwards. He rejoined the 9th Regiment but was again wounded, this time in the head, and died of his injuries two days later on the 9th January 1917 at the age of 21.

He was buried in I.C.6. Hazebrouk Communal Cemetery, France.

He was the brother of F.William (Willie) Barker and they were both cousins of Arthur Barker and Wilfred Stanley Barker.
