A DEDICATED plot to commemorate 100 years since the end of the First World War has been created in Keighley's Utley Cemetery.

The one-metre by two-metre plot, a short distance down the slope from the car park and the Butterfield Mausoleum, has been prepared by the Friends of Utley Cemetery group.

Friends member Sheila Godsell, who lives in Beechcliffe, said the work to create this began about a month ago, and has recently been completed with the addition of a small plaque.

The plaque features the images of a First World era tank, aircraft and warship, to recognise the contributions of the army, air force and navy.

Poppies have been planted within the plot and people are now welcome to visit and place their own named memorial crosses on the same spot.

Mrs Godsell, who had the idea of establishing this particular commemoration in the cemetery, said it should remain in place for the foreseeable future.

"We want people to know this is there for them," she added. "It's a nice, sheltered space with a small fence around it and is covered in poppies."
