North East War Memorials Project

The North East War Memorials Project is a site that may be of some interest to people with ancestors from the North East who lost their lives in the two world wars.

What makes this site different from some others - such as the Commonwealth War Graves Commission - is that it is dedicated to local war memorials. This includes the public memorials ones that can be seen in towns and villages, and also ones that are less visible being inside schools, churches and working mens clubs.

Details provided include the location and description, a listing of names and a photograph. Searches can be made by name and/or location. A simple search for Daglish produces 43 results.

I have used this to find various memorials on my trips to the North East, such as the Cenotaph at Castle Bank, Morpeth.
