St John the Baptist's Church, South Carlton on the north wall of the
nave to Frank Yarnell and consists of a brass plaque with painted incised
lettering on a wood surround. There is a further memorial dedicated

memorial service for Trooper Frank Yarnell, of the Lincolnshire
Yeomanry, who was killed in a transport in the Mediterranean,
on the 8th [sic], was held in South Carlton church on Friday of
last week. Notwithstanding the inclement weather, the church was
filled with those who desired to pay honour and sympathy to the
deceased. The chancel screen was draped with the Union Jack, and
on the front of the screen was placed a wreathed and framed photograph
of the gallant land who has been the first of the village to fall.
The service was feeling conducted by the Vicar (Canon J. R. Elliott.)
there is an F. Yarnell on the main War Memorial in Lincoln, presumably
the same man since only one of this name on CWGC, whose details
tally with the above.]
