Remembered Today:

Farsley War Memorial [Leeds]

Guest mruk

Recommended Posts

I paid a visit to Farsley yesterday and made a list of the men who died. It's a nice little place on the outskirts of Bradford and Leeds, and the people in the local shops and Post Office were extremely helpful. A million miles, it seems, from the other side of Leeds where I live. Please bear with me, though, while I type in the namesby individual panel [6]:

"In Honour of the Men of Farsley Who Gave Their Lives in the Great War"

"Eternal Honour, Give to Those Who Died"

"Erected by Public Subscription June 1921"

There are a number of common names inscribed, and it seems likely there is a family connection in some cases. However, I'm wondering if anyone knows what the abbreviation "JAs" means which forms the first part of the name of "JAs" William Moorhouse?

Kind Regards,

Thanks Dave,

It hasn't been a complete waste of time. I'm looking for men who served with the 10th West Yorkshires. It's a good job I didn't decide to type the names of all the men listed on the Pudsey Cenotaph.
