This WW2 memorial was originally displayed in the Methodist Church on Market Street at Hoyland. The memorial is now part of a private collection and is 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 WW1 memorial 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 Second World War 1939-1945.
