MOSSELY CONSERVATIVE CLUB ROLL OF HONOUR
(WAR MEMORIAL)

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and copyright © Martin Edwards 2005
World War 2 transcription Rita Vaughan

The details here are taken from an old postcard. They cover World War 1 and the men whoserved from the Conservative Club in Carrhill Road, Mossely, part of the Yorkshire Ward. The translation of names and initials may not be 100% correct here as they were taken from the card but the majority appear to be correct. Those who died have been marked here with a poppy but on the Roll of Honour are boxed in. The memorial for World War 1 no longer exists. There is a World War 2 memorial with the names of those who served and those that died.
