A definitive answer to how many Otley men enlisted and served in the First World War may never be known.   Of those who died just under 190 unique names are listed on Otley's memorials with further research bringing the total to just over 200 servicemen dying with close ties to the town.  Their addresses are shown on the map with names listed underneath

 

Of the fallen, most died or were fatally wounded in Flanders and northern France but others speak of the war's wider conflicts in Mesopotamia and Gallipoli for example.  Others died much closer to home in accidents on land or at sea around Britain.
