Hi. I'm researching my grand father who was a member of the Oddfellows in Wortley in the 1940-50s. Could you please pass on my contact details to the owner of the memorial? *email redacted* I'm looking for amy information about him. It seems many of the records of this venerable organisation may have been lost. Best wishes.

Details here:
Like all pubs it will be closed at the moment but you could try contacting them via the email address on their website.

There is a branch of the Oddfellows still in existence in Barnsley, they meet at the Boatman's Rest in Worsbrough. You could try their contact email as well. It's on this pre-Covid event announcement.
