War Memorials and Memorials are a rich source of information for the family historian. They are also a focal point for a community and now almost 100 years and possibly 60 years later they are still revered by families and relatives.
Although this blog is meant to be primarily a source of information, let us not forget those brave people who put their lives on the line and stood and were counted - if only by chance at times.We salute you!

East Ardsley - St Michael's with St Gabriel's
I had the fortunate task of photographing a wedding in this church. It really is quite a small church but lovingly cared for and well maintained. There is clearly a dedicated and loyal bunch of people who work for their church. There is a good up to date website. I had the good fortune to speak to the vicar, well informed, great service too!
There is a war memorial close to the entrance of the church which is also has the appearance of being remade. Some of the letters on the memorial are starting to peel off, and some renovation work would be useful, but all the letters are still legible. A good visit a nice church and good weather. Biting wind though! Apart from the "standard" pictures of the memorial and the church I have added other pictures in the store as well as the inscription and names.
