I have, so far, been able to identify two men from families which were
prominent in Scholes who died during their service. Lance Corporal Herbert McConnell and Leading Aircraftman William
The McConnell's came to Scholes from Headingley in Leeds soon after the end of the Great War,
but long enough after it for their son to not be considered for inclusion amongst the names of the war dead. Herbert McConnell
is, however, commemorated on the War Memorial at Headingley. The youngest son of the family, Leslie became very well known
throughout village life, with his membership of the cricket club and his leadership of the village youth group.
The Chippindale's were the proprietory family behind the village's brick and tile works. The wider family provided
four young men to fight the war and three of them were decorated for their bravery. The fourth was William Chippindale, firstly
a member of the Royal Flying Corps and then on it's creation, the Royal Air Force. William Chippindale died of a combination
of Tuberculosis and pnuemonia in 1921, almost a year after the completed War Memorials were unveiled, and therefore too late
to be included among the war dead. He is however named alongside his fellow servicemen on the Nominal Roll displayed inside
the Manor House.
