Grimethorpe Men in the Great War Book

This useful book can be found on the Reference shelf in the Acorn Centre, High Street, Grimethorpe. 

It lists all the men on the Grimethorpe War Memorial outside St Luke's Church and on the Roll of Honour in Grimethorpe Working Men's Club on Brierley Road.  There are collected newspaper cuttings about the fallen men and information on where they are buried or remembered (if they have no known resting place).

Researched by Ronald Harpham and Thomas Hughes, this is the kind of project that should exist for every town's war memorial.
