West Leeds World War One Graves: Armley Hill Top

1 November 2019

A week or so ago I thought it might be a good idea to take a photo of all the World War One graves in West Leeds, writes Mark Stevenson.

It soon became clear to me I would need to narrow it down to get it done in the time I had.

The numbers I use are from the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website and to make it more manageable I only took a photo of graves with a Commonwealth War Graves Commission headstone.

Some WW1 war graves have private headstones which meant I would have had to look at all the graves in West Leeds, which I did not have time for, but I’m sure I will get around to. 

Armley Hill Top Cemetery has 34 casualties from WW1.

I was able to find 23 with War Graves Commission headstones. Two I was able to find addresses for that are still around today. Thomas Sedgwick, of 15, Aviary Grove, Armley and J H  Wilkinson, of 18, Clarence St., Bramley. 

Look out for other cemeteries over the coming days.
