About the memorial: Situated - Holy Trinity Church on Church Lane in South Crosland is situated on the outskirts of the village approximately some ¼ mile from the village centre of Netherton Description – a large wooden oak memorial tablet detailing the names of those who gave their lives in World War 1 The period commemorated is 1914 – 1919 The Dedication – Saturday, May 7th 1921, was the day fixed for the unveiling of the beautiful Memorial, which had been skilfully designed, executed and lettered by a craftsman in wood, Mr. H. P. Jackson, of Halifax, who had made the oak reredos. The Vicar read the 39 names of those who had given their lives, and said the words of dedication “ In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, we dedicate this Memorial Tablet, to the Glory of God, and in memory of the men of this parish who fell in the Great War”. Lt.-Col. Sir G. A. Armitage, of Kirklees, accompanied by the Vicar, Rev. R. Robertson, Rev. C. H. Slack, and the Churchwardens, Major Brooke and Mr. Duckinfield, unveiled the Memorial Tablet, and gave a suitable address on the need of comradeship. The address was given by Canon Tupper Carey, Vicar of Huddersfield. The choir sang the anthems, “The Souls of the Righteous” and “What are these? “and the hymns, “Oh God our help in ages past” and “For all the Saints”. Mr. Lunn played a Funeral March by Beethoven and the “Last Post” and “Reveille” were sounded by Drummer Beevers. The Service was attended by many Ex-Service Men, and beautiful wreaths were sent by relatives.
