Barnsley Radical and Liberal Club Memorial, (formerly) Market Street, Barnsley

Barnsley Radical and Liberal Club Memorial
This memorial was originally housed in the Barnsley Radical and Liberal Club on Market Street, but is now part of a private collection. It is a large memorial approximately 7 feet tall consisting of an ornate wooden frame with the words 'Roll of Honour' carved in the wood with decorative inner ceramic tiles that contain a scroll with names of men from the club who served in the Great War.

Our original post from March 2014 reporting the existence of this memorial, with map and contemporary newspaper cutting.

Photographed, researched and transcribed by members of the Bwmp.

At the base of the memorial is a brass plate that says:
