Towns and Villages

Here are the names of those people from Lees, Cross Roads, and Bocking who served in the Great War.
Their names appear on a main roll of honour in the memorial building in Cross Roads Park; at St James Church; Lees Methodist Church and on a special photographic war memorial displayed next to the main roll of honour in the park which was re-created by us from photographs and information held at Keighley Library. The original memorial was from Cross Roads Primitive Methodist Sunday School. (story here).

Order of service for the unveiling of the Lees Cross Roads and Bocking war memorial on 16th July 1921.

Three local men who had served, were chosen to unveil the memorial and lay a wreath. They were (left to right) Arthur Grainger, Robert Ashton and Samuel Elimeleck Williams.
