LEEDS, STOURTON AND THWAITEGATE WAR MEMORIAL

World War 1 & 2 - Detailed information
Compiled and Copyright © Martin Edwards 2007

The memorial stands at the junction of Wakefield Road, Pontefract Road and Thwaitegate, Stourton. It was moved about 1973 from St Andrew's Church, Pontefract Road, when the church was closed and eventually demolished to make way for redevelopment in the area. The new site was donated by John Waddington Printers who paid for its removal and re-erection also. The memorial takes the form of a plinth surmounted by a shaft and cross with inscriptions on the sides of the plinth; the memorial is on a raised area set away from the road with steps leading to it. The names listed here have been sorted into alphabetical order for ease of reading and research.
