World War 1 had a significant impact on the village of Bishop Burton. Probably more so than World War 2. Seven men of the village who died are remembered on the memorial that overlooks the Mere. They also appear on tablets to be found in the church and on the wall at the entrance to the War Memorial. The purpose of this article, first published in 2008, is to provide information about the men who died and give a village context to the campaign using published and unpublished sources.

You may also be interested in the series of articles about the men who died during WW1 at the Beverley Aerodrome, part of which is within the boundary of the parish. Their deaths are commemorated on a brass plaque to be found on the wall of the church. The series starts here: Beverley Aerodrome and Bishop Burton Articles
