Rawcliffe War Memorial

Rawcliffe War Memorial

56 names of the men who died during WW1 from the villages of Rawcliffe and Rawcliffe Bridge near Goole in East Yorkshire are commemorated on the Memorial situated near the railway station between the two communities lying between the banks of the River Aire and the Aire and Calder Canal. For an in-depth understanding of the impact of War on the Parish a book, published in 2018 by Robert Barker, a resident of Rawcliffe, entitled "Though Lost to Sight to Memory Dear. Rawcliffe: One Parish and its People at the Time of War" is strongly recommended.
