York Minster Memorial Screen

This wooden memorial screen is in the North Transept of York Minster.  Each door bears the crest of a regiment and written inside are the names of the women who served in that regiment and were killed during the First World War. The doors can be opened by anyone who cares to look inside.

The screen also records that the Five Sisters window in York Minster was restored by women in memory of their fallen comrades. The window is now a memorial to the women who gave their lives in both World Wars.


  1. Its all to easy to forget the contribution women made during WW1, they may not have fought but many endured hardship and risked their lives.
