I do know of a memorial that I believe hung in the Wesleyan Sunday School building in School Lane. This was lost in the 1990s when the School building was sold and most of its assets disposed of. Apparently the memorial was in an old picture frame that had been covered up with another picture, this along with a number of other pictures were sold, for the frames rather than the pictures. Sometime later we were contacted by the buyer who had found the memorial and returned it to us. I then had it reframed and it was then displayed in the Church. When we sold the church building, we gave the memorial to the Parish Church of St Anne's in the Grove Southowram for safe-keeping and to make sure it stayed in the village
