The Eastbrook Hall Sunday School Roll of Honour comprises of 5 very large oak frames containing named photographs of Sunday School scholars who served in the war. These were rescued, in a very poor condition, from a skip after a serious fire at the Eastbrook Hall in 1966. For over 30 years they were held in private hands until being donated to the WW1 Group at the Mechanics Institute and in need of restoration.

Members of the WW1 Group, Chris and Gail, have now completed the extensive restoration work required and, for the very first time, the back of of each photo can be revealed. By inseting a clear acrylic panel, addresses and poignant messages can now be seen.

Each of those commemorated in the five frames is now being researched. It is intended that a booklet can be published to reveal the stories behind the photographs and that an opportunity can be found for the public to view these newly restored records of Bradford’s Methodist WW1 history.

If anyone has any information regarding Eastbrook Sunday School, the creation of the five displays or the names of the men and women who are included, please contact the WW1 Group.
