Joe Pickering, Andrew's father, widowed when Hannah died in 1901, remarries? to Jane (nee Shaw formerly Edgley) in ?1907.  Jane was Hannah's sister. It had only become legal to marry your deceased wife's sister in 1907.  Jane's first husband Sampson Edgley had died in 1902 aged 36 years leaving her with 2 children.  Joe himself dies in 1915 aged 51 and is buried in the same grave as his younger son William in Barnsley Cemetery.

Neither of Andrew's parents are still alive when the news of his death reaches Barnsley.  His wife remarries within two years and his only child Marjorie is very young.  Is Andrew remembered on any of Barnsley's War Memorials?
