Notes:

Ernest began his career in the Stock Bank in Nottingham before moving to Barnard Castle in 1905. Here he worked as a cashier in Barclays  from 1905 up until the time he enlisted in 1914; he spent a short period at the Richmond branch in 1912.

He was highly esteemed by his colleagues.

In August 1914 Ernest was drafted to the Army Pay Department at Aldershot.

He was a keen member of the Barnard Castle District Shooting Club and was made Sergeant in the Battalion King's Royal Rifles in September, just a month after enlisting.
