Fallen heroes from a north Kirklees village will be remembered in a special exhibition next weekend.

Despite its small population, Upper Hopton had a large proportion of its men killed in action in WWI, with as many as 12 believed to have lost their lives in battle.

Chris Breare, from Upper Hopton Community Association, said: “We originally knew there were two graves of soldiers who had died in WWI, but when we looked into it there were so much more from the area.”
