About the memorial: A Recreation ground of 10 hectares including pavillion, football and rugby pitches, cricket ground, bowling green and tennis courts was established in 1922. A rough hewn stone bearing incised inscription and depictions of a Yorkshire Rose and a Poppy was added as there was no previous recorded plaque or tablet. Date of dedication not known but appears to be a WW1 Centenary feature. The IWM register features the grounds and the stone as separate memorials, 2705 and 80314. I have combined them in this entry, but used the lower number as the link..
