Those who gave their lives from Yarm ______________________________________
HARWOOD, Oliver William. Pte 22505 13th Yorks.
The following was taken from the Yorkshire Regiment website
13 Apr 1918. Son of Charles Harwood, Millwright of Bentley Wynd. He had been born in Leeds and enlisted in Stockton early in the war while living at Yarm. Ploegsteert Memorial, Belgium [the date of death here is from CWGC/Soldiers Died. The Church Memorial gives 9 Apr. The unit went into billets on 13 Apr so it seems more reasonable that he was killed during a heavy gas attack on the 9th.
