CONONLEY – MISSING SINCE APRIL 9th

Private J. W. Rogers lived at Cononley up to joining the Tyneside Scottish. He was transferred to France, and up to the week before Easter regularly communicated with his wife. The return of her letters to him roused her anxiety, and immediately steps were taken to ascertain his whereabouts, but in vain, for no further information of any kind whatever has since been forthcoming; the Record Office only being able to state that he has been missing since April 9th. He was formerly employed by Messrs. Green at Station Mill, Cononley. Much sympathy is felt for his wife and child, who live in the village.
