New name added to Headlingley war memorial

In September 2016 the Legacies of War team were contacted by Graham Wright, whose grandfather Reginald Wright was killed on the 28th March 1918. His name was missed off the Headingley memorial when it was originally unveiled in 1921. However, thanks to Leeds City Council it was added in a ceremony on 2 April. Legacies of War members and local historians Dave Stowe and Andrea Hetherington, along with Alison Fell, were able to provide documents to help Graham approach the council with evidence that his grandfather should have been originally included.
