The Ypres Menin Gate Memorial
The Ypres Menin Gate Memorial

The Menin Gate is one of four memorials to the missing in Belgian Flanders which cover the area known as the Ypres Salient.

The battles of the Ypres Salient claimed many lives on both sides and it quickly became clear that the commemoration of members of the Commonwealth forces with no known grave would have to be divided between several different sites. The site of the Menin Gate was chosen because of the hundreds of thousands of men who passed through it on their way to the battlefields. It commemorates those of all Commonwealth nations (except New Zealand) who died in the Salient, in the case of United Kingdom casualties before 16 August 1917.

Of the 54,325 names on the memorial, 475 are for men serving in the Yorkshire Regiment.

(++) J E Ryder is listed in the CWGC Register as being on the Memorial on an Addenda panel, though his name does not appear to actually be ON the Memorial.
(1) Private A E Neate is shown on the panel, incorrectly, as "Private A E Neste".
(2) Lieutenant R B Woosnam appears to be listed on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial in error. He served with the Worcestershire Regiment, and was killed at Gallipoli, - and is commemorated on the Helles Memorial (Addenda)
(3) Although "F Tyerman" is actually shown on the Memorial, he is no longer listed in the CWGC Register. This was probably Private F Tyreman who is buried in Maple Copse Cemetery.
(4) Lieutenant C G Weston's name originally appearred on the Memorial, but he is buried in Divisional Cemetery. He is listed in the CWGC database in Divisional Cemetery and no longer appears in the database for the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial.
