Yorkshire Regiment War Graves, -
Wakefield Cemetery contains 114 burials from both the First and
Second World Wars. One of the First World War burials is of Private Frederick
Norgate of the Yorkshire Regiment.
Private Norgate's grave is a family grave.
We are extremely grateful to Richard Roberts (<email@example.com>) who has forwarded the photograph of Fredrick Norgate's grave in this cemetery, and a photo of the area in Wakefield Cemetery where the grave may be found.
The Norgate Family Headstone
Private Frederick Norgate. 22124. 1st Garrison
Battalion Yorkshire Regiment. Husband of Hannah Norgate, of 15 Boro'
Rd., Lupset, Wakefield. Died at home 16 February 1918. Aged 35.
The inscription on the headstone reads
Note : Although Private Norgate is shown as
being in the West Yorkshire Regiment on the headstone, this will probably
be because drafts to the 1st Garrison Battalion Yorkshire Regiment
came from the Durham Light Infantry, the West and East Yorkshire Regiments,
and the "Leeds Bantams".
