Borrowby Wesleyan, in the Thirsk Circuit, recorded seven losses. The village war memorial records twelve, and further details of all the men may be found here. The village had both Wesleyan and Primitive Methodist chapels, and a Quaker burial ground, so this proportion is likely to be correct. Note no record has been made of religious affiliations, so this roll stands as their only Methodist memorial.
