James Clarke is named on St.James' Church War Memorial. However, despite extensive enquiries, no further information about him has come to light.The website of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission lists 158 men named Clarke, with their initial letter beginning with 'J', who died in the 1939-1945 War. Fifty two men have 'James' as either their first or only forename. None of these show a connection with Haslingden. Because of this, it is impossible to verify which one is James.
It is with great regret, therefore, that I am unable to record the sacrifice that James made for his country during the course of the war.
