(This memorial gravestone is in the lower section of the churchyard, over to the right at the bottom of the path, on the far side of some trees - see letter E on the Friends of Darfield Churchyard's map  which can be downloaded as a .pdf file here)

In loving memory of Pte. Abel Marsh 13th Y&L Regt. / who died from wounds received in action in France / October 19th 1918 aged 22 years /. In the midst of life we are in death. / Also Pte. Arthur Marsh 13th Y&L Regt. /Brother of the above who fell in action in France / March 23rd 1918 aged 20 years  / Gone but not forgotten  / Also Pte John William Marrow 13th Y&L / the beloved husband of Harriet Ann Marrow /  who fell in action in France May 22nd 1918 aged 34 years / In life respected in death lamented.

John William Marrow is buried in the Nine Eims British Cemetery in France and remembered on the  Commonwealth War Graves Commission  website.

John William Marrow is remembered on the Middlewood Shrine Doncaster Rd Barnsley
and on the Darfield, All Saints Church WW1 Memorial Tablet, and on the Darfield Cenotaph Welfare Park Church Street and on the  Darfield Main Colliery Roll of Honour  (in the Maurice Dobson Museum and Heritage Centre Darfield)

Arthur Marsh is remembered on the Arras Memorial, France and is commemorated on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website. 

A Marsh is remembered on the.Darfield Cenotaph Welfare Park  and on the Middlewood Shrine Doncaster Rd Barnsley and on the Darfield, All Saints Church WW1 Memorial Tablet,

Abel Marsh is buried in this grave site therefore the stone is NOT a war memorial to him (but it is to his brother and brother in law) and is NOT remembered on the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website, probably because it was disputed whether his wounds had led to his death or not.  The family thought they did. 

It is difficult to say which A Marsh is remembered on the various Darfield Memorials, but as only one is mentioned it might be expected to be Arthur rather than Abel.
