Extract from Lincolnshire Chronicle – South Carlton – 20 November, pg 3:

A 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.)

[Note: 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.]
