High Spen - War Memorial

The names, ranks, regiments and dates of death of men who gave their lives in the Great War 1914-1918.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
