In December 1918, a memorial created by Frances Darlington to remember the children of Harrogate’s Police Orphanage who went on to serve in World War One was unveiled in the foyer of their main building on Otley Road.

Miss Darlington’s work contained the names of the children at the orphanage who served during the Great War, with the names of those who lost their lives having their capitals engraved in red.

The memorial now sits proudly in Ripon’s Prison and Police Museum and will soon be accompanied by a piece of work created by France’s great, great niece, Louise Marchal.
