Sheffield Park

Sheffield Memorial Park is dedicated to the men of the British Army's 31st Division who served with the Pals Battalions, the majority of which were recruited from Yorkshire. Communities were devastated as relatives, friends and colleagues served together and often died together. Within the park there are a number of memorials to the various Pals Battalions that fought here. The largest is the brick-built memorial commemorating the Accrington Pals, it is constructed from 'Accrington NORI' bricks.
