The city of York lies 9.00 miles East of Tadcaster and has many links to our town. Stone from local Tadcaster quarries have been used for centuries in York and Tadcaster stone was used in the building of York Minster. In the period around WW1 many men from this are worked in the York district and enlisted there.

Around the time I started the Tadcaster Memorials site in 2004 Steve Mattock was researching the men from the York district. Many of the memorials on Steve's site overlap in to the Tadcaster area which has ensured a full part of North Yorkshires War Memorials and the men mentioned on them to be remembered.

An excellent site please take time to look through each page, Men from York A-Z are remembered as well as up to 28 War Memorials researched along with those men who served as prisoners of war in WW1.
