Kirkburton History Group - Memorial Board
The Kirkburton History Group was interested in the centennial celebrations of World War One and three group members started collecting information about the inhabitants of Kirkburton who had fought and died, or fought and returned, from that War.
A successful application was made by the Group to the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2014 to secure funding to undertake a range of projects related to the First World War, the Memorial Board being the main project.
There are 400 names on the Board and members are researching each one to build a picture or their lives prior to, during and after the war. The intention is to publish a book when the research is finished and to add the information to this website. (Click here to access the Debt of Honour Register)
Agreement was given by Kirklees Council for the Board to have a permanent place in Kirkburton Library.
