In 2018 as part of a national project to record the condition of local war memorials, members of the Wetherby Civic Society surveyed and recorded the condition of as many of the war memorials in the old Wetherby Rural District Council area as we could find, gathering information on the location, condition and photographing each memorial.
As part of the celebrations of the 25th anniversary of the founding of the Wetherby Civic Society we thought it would be useful if some of the information we had gathered could be published and perhaps become a work of reference for the future, as things can and do change in our area.
All the following information & pictures were included in a booklet and presented to representatives of each of the Parish Councils in December 2019
Contributors included Civic Society members Peter Catton, Andrew Gordon, Victor Hawkins, Nic Sheppard and Roger Taylor.
