Ryedale War Memorials

The Revd Beryl Bowes has forwarded the below for inclusion on our website in the hope it may be of interest to those living in Broughton.


Ryedale War Memorials


The Ryedale Family History Group is in receipt of a Heritage Lottery Grant, some of which is to be spent on researching War Memorials. The idea is to produce a booklet for each parish or community which provides information about how the memorial was designed, built and funded, and to give a pen picture of each individual listed on the memorial. This will include information about where, when and how they died, where they are buried, about the family they left behind and their circumstances. As far as possible, photos will be included.


If anyone has ancestors on a memorial that they are willing to share information about, please make contact as below. Even better, if anyone is interested in helping with the research, there is to be a meeting at the Ryedale Family History Research Room at Hovingham Village Hall on Wednesday 16th November at 2pm when research facilities will be offered and explained and the expected end result will be described. No expense will be incurred.

If you can offer either of the above please contact me by e-mail at


or telephone at 01904492712.

Thank you.

Peter Braithwaite
