On 25 August 1916, the Shipley Times & Expressed included the following in a caption under the photos of fallen local men: “Private John Brown, son of Mrs Steel of 4 Murgatroyd Place, Windhill, has been killed in action. “He enlisted in June 1915 and went to France about three months ago.
“Formerly he was employed at the works of the Charlestown Woolcombing Company.” The Commonwealth War Grave site lists a Pte John Brown from the West Yorkshire Regt, killed on 1 July 1916 and noted on the Thiepval Memorial, but with such a common name it is impossible to be sure it is the same man.
