Ah, yes you did! I got one of them but a couple of others to look for, my bad Jim, thought there were new ones on the list.

I'm around St B way soon so I'll have a look for that one again,and I've a list of names to take photos of on the hoe memorial so I'll look for that one, sorry for the mix up Jim.

Jim, Kirton Peterhead? 

 

Hello Kenny,

KIRTON, Fraserburgh - Agnes May Rettie MITCHELL, hospital nurse, died 1st December 1916, aged 36. She is buried in Kirton Cemetery.

PETERHEAD, Aberdeenshire - Bella Jane BRUCE, was interred in grave A/92, Peterhead Cemetery in November 1918. There are five members of the Bruce family in the same grave. This is a speculative one as the name of B.J. Bruce is on the York Minster panels. With no first names it is a matter of finding the right one. I could not find her death registered in England or Wales during the war time period. But two in Scotland. The other is Barbara Jane Will BRUCE who was interred on the 2nd November 1918 in NIGG Churchyard, Aberdeenshire (Nellie Bruce in the same grave). I am hoping that a headstone will give a clue as to the right one. I did a Google as to how far between Peterhead and Nigg and found it was140 miles apart (I heard Sean Connery in my head saying "Shurly Shum Mishtake"). You have to tell Google that Nigg is in Aberdeenshire before it will put you right. Small place. It says that Nigg is an area of Aberdeen, Scotland, south of the River Dee. The area has a bay known as the Bay of Nigg or Nigg Bay, immediately south of a coastal golf course, and a farm that is also a visitor attraction, known as Doonies Farm. Depending on how you plan to get to Peterhead perhaps you can manage both. But shall understand if you manage neither. Regards, Jim

I have census information and not a lot more. There is a memorial in Grangetown, about five miles east of Middlesborough, and close to the steelworks, which contains 138 names of which one is female. The wording is simply "Nurse Rodgers V.A.D." QMAAC and VAD work was very similar and because of the geographical location being relatively close it is assumed that this relates to Catherine. Someone once told me that her name was on the Jarrow War Memorial but I don't believe this to be the case.

Peter,

The name of Susanah Hall was only placed on the Reedham War Memorial in 1995. I have a photograph of it from a newspaper article but, by it's nature, is not the best so if you have one it would be appreciated. As for Violet Meal, that is one that I have. The CWGC adopted her grave in 2014 but as the existing headstone is extant and in quite good order I don't think that they will consider adding their own.

Regards,

Jim

 Here's the relevant panel from the Reedham Memorial for Susannah Hall. I've e-mailed you some images of the same thing. Three of her brothers, Ernest, John and James are listed on other faces.

 

The Army Register of Soldiers Effects records that she died of pneumonia. The photo link will take you through to more biographical details.

CO. DURHAM

 

Chester le Street

 

Lillie LIDDELL, VAD (died 29/9/18 and buried in Egypt). I have photographs of her name on the Chester le Street War Memorial and on a newish memorial in the Market Place. I have since found that there is a memorial to her inside a church but I cannot be certain which one. I think that it is probably that of St. Mary and St. Cuthberts Church for the Chester-le-Street War Memorial is outside and behind it. Not necessary but if you do make it to this one and at the church, I am happy to take another of the War Memorial, too.

 

Hebburn

 

Mary Slaughter, civilian, died 11th July 1916, aged 35. Buried in Hebburn Cemetery believed without a grave marker. This is an outside chance as I do not know her grave position as yet but there is a photograph of her funeral on the Web which may help.

 

Jarrow

 

Ann Isabella LAUGHLIN, civilian, died 15th June 1915, aged 62. She is buried in grave 693, section K, Jarrow cemetery with her mother (Ann Fraser). Believed not to have a grave marker so a view of the grassy plot required.

 

Pelton

 

Mary Ann (Annie) BELL, munition worker, died 2nd May 1917, aged 18. There is an Annie Bell buried in plot OD237, Pelton cemetery and I am hoping that this is the one for me.Her name is on the Pelton Fell War Memorial but I have that.

 

Sunderland

 

Gertrude Ann PATRICK, civilian, died 1st April 1916, aged 19. She is buried in Mere Knolls Cemetery, Torver Crescent, Fulwell, Sunderland.

 

Elizabeth Ann RANSON, civilian, died 1st April 1916, aged 5.  She is buried in Mere Knolls Cemetery, Torver Crescent, Fulwell, Sunderland.

 

Elizabeth Jane THIRKELL, civilian, died 1st April 1916, aged 16. She is buried in Grangetown cemetery, Sunderland.

 

Elizabeth WELDON, civilian, died 1st April 1916, aged 67. She is buried in Mere Knolls Cemetery, Torver Crescent, Fulwell, Sunderland.

 

Willington

 

no longer required

 

NORTHUMBERLAND

 

Haydon Bridge

 

Winifred Eliza CARRICK, VAD, died 24th June 1919, aged 29. She is buried in Haydon Bridge's Alexandra Terrace cemetery. Presumably she is in a family grave, this reference may help with finding it.  (http://www.haydon-news.co.uk/issues/2016apr.pdf (edit) Did a Google Earth on Alexandra Terrace. Only church nearby is the Catholic one. Web site is weak and don't even know if the RC church has a cemetery.

Had a look at pelton. Unfortunately couldn't pinpoint the plots down as there is no map on the board here or online. I will try to find a map so I know the exact plot but I have photographed the area I think it is

Hi Jim,

I've just posted a message regarding my great-aunt, Victoria Florence Whiddett together with a photograph I took recently of one of the memorial panels in York Minster commemorating the deaths of women who died as a result of their work in munitions factories. It appears that her surname was misspelt, Whidgett instead of Whiddett.

Hello Howard, We have already been in personal correspondance about your great aunt and you provided me with some of the family history. Since then I have obtained a photograph of her grave which seems to be unmarked  (unless you know different).  Regards, Jim
