Bradford City Fire Disaster Memorial at Centenary Square, Bradford

Every year on 11th May a memorial service for the Bradford Fire Disaster takes place in Centenary Square, opposite the City Hall. In 2020 the Covid-19 emergency has prevented a memorial service taking place and instead it will be held online (from this link).

The following are my photographs of the memorial in Centenary Square presented by the City of Hamm, unveiled on 11th May, 1986.


The following features about the disaster commemoration were written by myself and published on the Width of a Post blog:
