Although the War Memorial was not Unveiled until 2014, there is a history and heritage honouring and commemorating those who fell from our district.
We show on this page the Memorials that can be seen in Churches, Social Clubs, a Public House and a Funeral Directors.
The Roll of Honour for Rodley United Methodist Church was retrieved in summer 2015 just before the building was about to be converted from a former photographic studios to a fitness centre.
Four Memorials no longer exist:
Bramley Zion Baptists, although a transcription is shown below.
Salem Baptist Stained Glass Window, we were fortunate to obtain a black and white photo, which is shown below.
Yates Mill, Broad Lane, Bramley, we are still looking for details of the Memorial that was apparently set into the wall, any information would be gratefully received.
In June 2019 a photo was discovered through Bramley History of a World War One Memorial for Broad Lane Council School, this carries 29 names, 28 of whom are already on our Memorial, with the 29th, Oscar Broadbent will be added.
Our database is cross referenced to show these local memorials and they have assisted in the earlier research by the late Brian Crowther and the additional research by our current Archivist.
Three local Church cemeteries (St.Peter’s, Bramley; Bramley Baptists and St. Thomas’s Stanningley) contain official War Graves.
All the Bramley memorials are fully transcribed in the Yorkshire Archeological Association booklet compiled by Margaret Ford , this can be bought from our shop page.
