Ancestry seem to have him confused with another WK born 1870. CWGC shows 24 at DoD. BW &VM only it seems. Roll wrongly indexed by ancestry as 23013. The roll does not show 2ELR. But shows 3rd, 1st and 7th. Not enough info but no obvious Barrow births around 1894; plenty of possibilities in Blackburn
