Pudsey Cemetery has 31 casualties from World War One, 22 of which have headstones, writes Mark Stevenson.

I was able to find addresses for some of them.

William Wade husband of Annis Wade, of 5, Whittaker Street, Farsley.

C.W Dean husband of Amy Dearnly (formerly Dean), of 12, Randolph St., Bramley.

John William Fowler son of Jonathan and Mary Louisa Fowler, of 123, Fartown, Pudsey.

J.H Illingworth husband of Edith Rhodes (formerly Illingworth), of 30, Nether St., Farsley.

Henry Isles son of Mary France Coggins of 14, Primrose Hill, Stanningley.

H.H Beaumont son of William Beaumont; husband of Agnes Maud Beaumont, of 5, Highfield St., 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. 

Check out my coverage of St Thomas in Stanningley, St Wilfrid’s in Calverley and Hill Top in Armley.
