In memory of the Menston fallen

First published in News

Plans to commemorate the First World War will be discussed in a meeting at Menston Methodist Church on Monday at 7.30pm.

This builds upon the book by Judith Knaggs commemorating the 50 men from Menston who gave their lives and whose names are recorded on the memorial outside Kirklands. Of particular interest is the Butterfield family of WP Butterfield Ltd of Shipley, which donated Menston Hall to the village. Villagers are keen to find out if there are any relatives in the area, and any more information about the family. Contact Councillor Dale Smith on 07801 669780 or at
