Glaisdale Roll of Honour. Methodist Archive and Research Centre (reference MA 8030 item 182)
Trustees for Methodist Church Purposes, 2018

Glaisdale, in the North Yorkshire moors had two Wesleyan chapels, Glaisdale End and Glaisdale Head. The latter contains a Roll of Honour, seen Glaisdale Roll which appears to be that for the whole settlement.

The seven men from this chapel not to return were:

Driver John Bonas                                   112th Brigade, B Battery, Royal Field Artillery

Sapper John H. Scarth                           55500      Royal Engineers

Private Frederick William Scarth    352701     Royal Scots

Private Francis R. Scarth                    36298        South Staffordshire Regt.

Private William Ward                            21707        3rd Bn. Coldstream Guards

Private Pennock Winspear                426816     13th Bn. Canadian infantry

Private Harry Winspear                       18246    Northumberland Fusiliers

Both Winspears appear in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission records as Harry, but both rolls of honour are agreed that Pennock did die. They were brothers, as were the three Scarths.
