War Memorial

By Rod Young

 

This memorial can be found in Rothwell Methodist Church, Rothwell Nr Leeds.

The church is in the Aire and Calder Methodist Circuit in the Leeds Methodist District.

Unveiled in 1947 it commemorates those who served in both 1914 - 1918 and 1939 - 1945 wars. It is not clear which set of names refers to which period, although the first three are probably WW1 and the others WW2.
