Long Description:
This memorial is in the memorial garden on Norfolk Gardens down the side of the City Hall. It is on the far side of the small garden, where a new bus station has just been built on Hall Ings.

There are a number of memorials in the garden behind fairly low hedges. There is no indication that the memorials are here and it is easy to miss them.

The small plaque stands on the ground and is black with gold lettering. It was recently re-located to here as part of the preparations for the new city park area.

This is the only memorial in the park to a mayor or mayoress, but I have not been able to find out anything about her or as to why she was so special.

The inscription is in black lettering reads.
IN MEMORY OF
IRENE SMITH
LADY MAYORESS
OF BRADFORD
1973 - 74
WHO DIED 15TH JUNE 1990
A LOVELY LADY
WITH A GENTLENESS OF HEART
Location: Norfolk Gardens Memorial Garden, Norfolk Gardens
