A brass plaque, commemorating the names of twenty Ilford Limited employees who lost their lives during the First World War, is presently on display at the HARMAN Technology Limited factory in Mobberley, Cheshire.

The plaque, which was originally on display at the Ilford Limited Factory in Ilford, was moved to new headquarters in Cheshire after the Ilford factory was demolished in the 1980s.

HARMAN Technology Limited, which trades under the name Ilford Photo, is the successor company of Ilford Limited and was so named after Alfred Hugh Harman, original founder of Ilford Limited in 1879.

John Travers Cornwell, third youngest recipient of the Victoria Cross, is commemorated on this memorial but his connection to Ilford Limited remains unknown.
