Keighley Union Workhouse

A framed and glazed roll of honour for Keighley Union Workhouse. This is currently in the care of Cliffe Castle Museum, Keighley. It was unknown for many years until recently when it was discovered amongst some paintings in their archives. It wasn't with the other war memorials in storage probably because it was viewed as artistic piece.
