Clifton's war memorials

Clifton has two memorials and a commonwealth grave, recognising the men lost in two world wars with associations to Clifton village.

In grateful memory

According to Clifton’s Historian, Margaret Sharp in her book Clifton Village Timeline,  the War Memorial was unveiled on 19th November 1921. 

The memorial is engraved with the names of the thirty-two Clifton men who lost their lives in World War One

WWII memorial

A lasting memory to those lost in WWII

The Clifton Village Community Association (CVCA) has arranged a new memorial stone for those Clifton men who died in WWll. The existing memorial in the memorial garden is for those lost in WWl – there is only a short statement referring to those lost in WWll due to lack of space.

The CVCA is very grateful to Rand & Asquith for generously donating the stone and foundation stone. We also are grateful to Calderdale Council who has paid for the installation (through a successful grant application) and to Calderdale Council Bereavement Services who has generously paid half the cost of the engraving. 

The CVCA have funded the balance.
