Remembering the 28 men of Pudsey who lost their lives in the first day of the Battle of the Somme, and the further 53 who died in the following days. Allum, Barsby, Boocock, Booth G, Booth M, Bradley, Clark, Clough, Coates, Coe, Gaunt J, Gaunt S, Grassby, Greaves, Haley, Hare, Jennison, Jessop, Musgrave, Porritt, Procter, Rhodes, Rider, Roddy, Skirrow, Thrippleton, Tillotson, Walker.
The first phase of the restoration is underway; a poultice is being applied to the stonework to lift out the staining. A lot of work and money to raise yet before completion, please help at: http://www.pudseycenotaph.co.uk/restoration-appeal-2014.html
Thanks to all contributors so far!
