Monuments and memorials around Kirklees
One hundred years on, we are all connected to the First World War. Visit the war memorials and exhibitions.
Also called the Great War, it was most centred in Europe on the Franco-German borders.
World War 1 was, at the time, the largest single war ever to have occurred.
From 2nd November 2014 until 2018 - "Huddersfield' First World War Stories" is an exhibition with objects, photographs, uniforms and postcards and explores the lives of local people at home and away during the First World Warry
The exhibition also includes the dramatic new film Loss and Legacy: The Tolson Story, based on the tragic story of Legh Tolson's two nephews who were killed in The First World War, and whose memory the museum was given to the people of Huddersfield in 1919
From August 2014, This Grade II Listed 1830s cloth merchant's home with fascinating Brontë connections will be exhibiting a First World War exhibition. Researched by local residents, 'Gomersal and the Great War' pays tribute to the 80 Gomersal men who lost their lives during the First World War and explores how the war had an impact on village life.
