New Wortley Cemetery has 43 casualties from WW1, writes Mark Stevenson.
I was able to find headstones for 34, the only address I could find was that of G Robinson husband of M. E. Winterburn (formerly Robinson), of 22, Campbell St., New Wortley or possibly Pudsey.
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.
