St Stephen’s Churchyard in Kirkstall has 12 casualties from World War One, writes Mark Stevenson.

Four of these have headstones and I was able to find an address for the one for F R Fewson, husband of J Fewson, of 5 Beechwood Walk.

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.

It soon became clear 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.
