Photographed by the Bwmp
This WW1 memorial was originally housed in the Market Street, Methodist Church at Hoyland. It is currently in a private collection and has been shared here with kind permission of the owner.

The memorial has been photographed and transcribed by members of the BWMP.

The white marble plaque matches the WW2 plaque from the same Church and is inscribed with the following words:

To the Glory of God and the Abiding Memory of the Young Men of this Church and Sunday School who fell in the Great War 1914-1918.
Edmund Gill
Alfred Utley
Frank Lockwood
Isaac Oakley Leach
Fritz Leach
Robert L Beaumont
Frank Standish

"And so they passed over, and all the trumpets sounded for them, on the other side."
