Watch: Stunning video remembers Bramley’s war dead


The work of a small team of hardworking volunteers who maintain Bramley’s war graves has been highlighted in a special video.

Filmed using drone camera footage by West Leeds resident David Taylor, the footage names some of the soldiers who laid down their lives in the first and second world wars. Mr Taylor was also responsible for this breathtaking video of St Bartholomew’s Church in Armley, which recently featured on The Dispatch.

The latest strim and clean of the war graves at Bramley Baptist Church took place yesterday.
