[There was a Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve pilot, LAC (Leading Aircraftman) Denis Michael Whittam Hartley (b.1921 - d. April 10, 1941) who died in war at the age of 19. His parents were John Whittam Hartley and Eva Althea Hartley. I wonder if this was our Hartley. LAC Hartley was buried in Berkshire, which obviously was far away from Burnley.]
