Granville Barlow (17) of 26 Church-street, Rochdale was on the Indefatigable. He was a little piecer at the Sparth Mill, but always had a desire to go to sea. Ten months ago he joined the Navy, went to Devonport to be trained, and last February went on the Indefatigable. He was home for a fortnight at Christmas, and told his mother he very much liked the life on ship. Since the sinking of the Indefatigable his mother has not had any information or reference to him. He attended St. Alban's Church and Sunday school. Private Alfred King, of the Lancashires, who was accidentally killed while training, was his uncle.
