Previously located in the Nu-Well Shopping Centre.

19 May 2014: The little plaque at the bottom reads "Nu-Well Shopping Centre Opened 19th June 1992".  It appears to be the same building but under new use.  We are just grateful they saw fit to preserve this Memorial.  Thank you.

May 2021: The current location of this massive Roll of Honour, the old Nu-Well building, maybe under threat of demolition.  

May 2024: The memorial has been saved and will be placed on view in July 2024. Location to be confirmed. Somewhere near the old town hall in Wombwell.

21 July 2024: The memorial was officially 'unveiled' by Barnsley's Mayor, Cllr John Clarke JP. 

It has been cleaned and placed in a purpose built shelter at right angles to the Old Town Hall pub, adjacent to the Boer War war memorial.

The small plaque at the foot now reads:

'Wombwell Reform Club War Memorial 
Preserved and Relocated by
The Wombwell Ward Alliance, Hayes Property and Development & Cranswick Convenience Foods'.
