There are several war memorials around the Pontefract
area. This section of our website may be the start of a
gallery of the war memorials in our area.
There are two views of the War Memorial at Ackworth Moortop and
three views of Pontefract War Memorial, taken shortly after the
remembrance service of 2011.
A couple from East Hardwick tend the village memorial
having recently taken over from
another husband and wife team who carried out this pleasurable task
for over 50
years. They kindly submitted submitted the fine view of
East Hardwick memorial with the wreath tributes in place under a
covering of snow. They have also allowed us to use their
pictures of the memorials at Pontefract All Saints Church,
Carleton, Darrington and Upton.
