In 2011, the ‘Men of Worth Project’ carried out a survey of all war memorials in the Keighley area which had been removed from churches and other buildings because of their closure.

One of these was from Cross Roads Primitive Methodist Sunday School, and was known to have been given to Keighley Reference Library, but had gone missing since.

The Men of Worth discovered photographs of the original memorial which, when magnified, showed up details of each man. They re-created the memorial, which was officially unveiled on February 11, 2017, at the Memorial Hall in Cross Roads Park.
