You might find these sites interesting and

Barnsley Archives hold many records of the Clarke family of Noblethorpe. The list includes the deeds of Pyegreave farm.

I think it’s Hardwick St.

I drove past there on my way to work for 15 years until retirement in 2002. The occupation would be something to do with farming. They could have been the farmer or farm workers. It may have had some connection to Noblethorpe Hall.

Someone I knew sent for their father’s WW2 U.K. army records. They showed he’d been court
martialled, the reason for it and the ruling of the court martial.  Do you have the gentleman’s army papers?

Perhaps she was a V A D (Voluntary Aid Detachment) nurse. These were untrained volunteers.

Henry and Joseph’s baptisms are available on Ancestry in Debenham Independent Chapel in England and Wales Non Conformist and Non Parochial Registers. If you go back and forwards in the register you might find the other children.

In the late 1970s I taught in a village school in Northamptonshire. The school had not long before started a new admissions register. The previous one from the date the school opened was fascinating as some of the children could see their parents and other family members. In September 1939 there were two pages one headed Natives and the other headed Immigrants. The page headed Immigrants were the children evacuated from Coventry about 22 miles away!
