Armistice 100 falls on November 11, 2018.

The eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918 marked a victory for the Allies against Germany - and this year, we remember the sacrifice of those who lost their lives fighting for our freedom

One of the deadliest conflicts in our history, millions died across the globe as a result of the Great War. More than 700,000 military deaths are thought to have taken place in the UK.

Hundreds of thousands of civilians also lost their lives.

In the run-up to Remembrance Sunday this weekend, we are commemorating the loss of life in Hartlepool with the publication of a Roll of Honour for Hartlepool's fallen.

There were few families across Hartlepool left untouched by the tragedy of the war. Now, and always, we honour them.

The names featured on the Hartlepool Roll of Honour, and many others, are included on the North East War Memorials Project's website, which you can visit here.
