War Memorial Kirkwall

This entry gate commemorates the residents of Kirkwall who were killed or missing in World War I (132 names) and World War II (28 names) and in Northern Ireland.

Many of these memorials were erected after the First World War. After the Second World War, the names of those who died in that war were also added to the memorial.
