1914 Project

Members of Gateshead Local History Society have been researching soldiers who died during the First World War. They are currently recording graves in Gateshead East Cemetery and researching family history records.

They are compiling maps to show the streets where the soldiers lived in Gateshead and would love to hear from anyone who has a family relative from Gateshead who died during the First World War, or if you have any photographs you could share.

If you have any information or would like to get involved please contact us at gatesheadlhs@gmail.com or call or 0191 4776924.

Some of the research undertaken by the group will soon be added to the North East War Memorials Project website.
