It is doubtful, but the John Inman on Hebden Roll of Honour may be referring to John Inman (born Linton near Grassington c. 1873) who attended school in Hebden from 1881 to 1886. This John’s family moved to Brierfield, Lancashire, c. 1890. John served briefly in the Army in 1915.
A short biography of John is included in: ‘Swaledale & Wharfedale Remembered - Aspects of Dales’ life through peace and war’ by Keith Taylor (2006).
