War Memorial, Burnopfield, County Durham

Burnopfield is a village in County Durham, Northeast England. We passed through it on a trip to see Gibside last year and happened on its War Memorial by the side of the road. A granite obelisk, on first sight the memorial seems to be for the Great War only but there are World War 2 names on it:-
