The Roll of Honour for the Parish of Morton

Morton parish is between Riddlesden and Bingley in West Yorkshire. The framed and glazed roll of honour is hand written in calligraphic text in four rows of 27 names of all the men who served during the Great War, with symbols next to the 17 names of those men who died in the war. There are 108 names in total.

The memorial was rediscovered in 2022, behind a panel in St. Luke's Church and the photograph below was supplied to us for display here by kind permission of Gerry Beevers, of the Bradford WW1 Group:
