All Saints, Sherburn in Elmet

This 10 foot stone cross stands in the church yard of All Saints at Sherburn in Elmet . The War Memorial Inventory describes it as:

CELTIC STYLE WHEEL CROSS ON TAPERING PLINTH AND THREE STEPPED BASE. TWO STONE FLOWER HOLDERS APPEAR TO HAVE INDIVIDUAL DEDICATIONS RELATING TO SOME OF THE WW2 NAMES

THEY DIED THAT WE MIGHT LIVE

MAY THEY REST IN PEACE AND MAY LIGHT PERPETUAL SHINE UPON THEM

FOR KING AND COUNTRY

1914 – 1918

1939 – 1945

I have photographs of the names, and the few war graves in the church yard   if any one   interested  would like a copy.
