Burley in Wharfedale War Memorial

At 11.00am on 11 November 1918 the First World War was over. The fighting was over but life would never be the same again. In towns and villages across the country public memorials were erected to commemorate their men and women who died in the First Word War. As our thoughts turn to Armistice day, Susanne Young, a historian from the Wharfedale Family History Society has shared her research with us about the names on the Burley in Wharfedale memorial.
