Hartlepool’s Great War Victims: BOOTH to BUXTON

editorial image

THE Mail is printing an alphabetical list of the known local casualties of the Great War as part of our Hartlepool at War series of articles. The 1,748 names will be published in weekly instalments until the centenary of the Bombardment of Hartlepool in December.

Our thanks go to Hartlepool historian Bert Wilson for allowing us to publish the list. Bert compiled the names using official records from sources such as London’s Imperial War Museum. We would like to illustrate our weekly tributes with photographs of those who died.

If you have a picture of a relative who was killed as a result of the hostilities then please email it to mail.news@northeast-press.co.uk.

Our newdesk can be contacted on (01429) 239381 for any further information.
