South Tyneside Remembers
South Tyneside Council
South Tyneside Council has set up the South Tyneside Remembers website which commemorates the lives of the men and women from South Tyneside who served during World War 1. The site is intended for use by people carrying out general and family research and those looking for information about their World War 1 relatives. It has been designed to be easy to use and understood by everybody, including people who have had no previous experience of either military or family history. The information has been compiled by volunteers, including Department for Work and Pensions Project 10,000 and staff at South Tyneside Libraries. More than 7000 people are included on the website and new records are being added daily. The aim is to continue to develop the site into the largest database of its kind for a local area, with potentially 13,000 individuals included, proving an invaluable tool for research.
