Work on the website is continuing and it will be developed further in the coming years. Please check regularly for new features.
The areas for development are set out below:
We are continuing to research and input information about people from South Tyneside for inclusion on the website.
Work is continuing to add links to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and North East War Memorials website where they are required.
We will be adding photographs of individual soldiers to the website. These have largely been gathered from newspaper reports from the Shields Gazette and the Jarrow Express.
If you have a photograph of your relative that you would like to add to their record on this website please contact us.
We will be adding a map of South Tyneside which shows where those who served lived.
Features and stories
We will be regularly including features and stories about individuals, regiments campaigns which we have discovered during our research.
