Memorial Plaque for "Z" Company 11th East Lancashire Regiment - The Burnley "Pals"

Over the last few years there has been a significant number of new memorials erected on the Western Front. This has been as a result of the increasing interest in the 'War to end all Wars' .
Some months ago it was suggested by Dennis Otter that it would be timely to have a memorial to the men from Burnley who never returned.
After some discussion it was decided that a general memorial to all Burnley men was not practical and so we decided on a specific memorial to the men of Z company who fell before Serre during the opening day of the battle of the Somme.
