ON SUNDAY I was honoured to attend the very moving unveiling ceremony of Private Herbert Moore's headstone at Oakworth Cemetery.

This was an official First World War headstone that is to recognise the sacrifice Pte Moore made.

It is thanks to the Men of Worth project and the research it has carried out that Pte Moore is now recognised by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission as a casualty of war.

The work of the Men of Worth Project is led by Andy and Helen Wade and Ian Walkden, and I wish to thank them for all the work they do to recognise the sacrifice that was made by so many local men.

The dedication on Sunday was attended by members of Pte Moore's family, civic leaders and many local people, and was supported by Oakworth Village Society.
