Sources and Acknowledgements:

The central core of the Barnes family tree was constructed by my father, Ernest Harold William Barnes from his own knowledge and research of the family and from family papers inherited from other members of the Barnes family.  Without my fathers' research and knowledge of the family it would not have been possible to extend the family tree, which has been achieved using both on-line and traditional research material sources.

A special thank you to Colin Barnes, who has kindly given me documents relating to his Uncle Charles' First World War service, including his Army Book, Discharge and Silver War Badge certificates as well as a photograph taken in India of the battery that Charles served in.
