I AM the archivist at Haworth Parish Church and, as such, have charge of our registers of baptisms, marriages and burials at the church [that date back to] 1645 and the books of the graveyard epitaphs.

We have recently received a letter from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC), which wishes to erect some extras signage at or near the graveyard entrance or by the graves of fallen soldiers from both world wars.

We have two such graves from the First World War and none from the Second World War. Both are family stone monuments, not the distinctive white CWGC stones seen in their thousands in Northern France and elsewhere.

The two soldiers are Lieutenant Colonel Frederick Ulysses Carr, who was 45, and Private Robert Scarborough, who was 18. Both died 100 years ago.

I ask please, through your columns, if there are any known descendants of these gallant soldiers, who lost their lives for our country? We would wish their involvement and views to be taken into account before we do anything with these graves. Both were from well-established Haworth families. Would any relatives of these two soldiers please contact me?
