    East Street

    Checks show two of the group, Thomas Hamilton and Thomas Hope Morton, both killed in action are shown on ROH 1914-18 Netherton Coal Company Memorial at St Cuthberts Church which indicates they were miners with the Netherton Coal Company. Additionally, Thomas Hamilton was in the Northumberland Fusiliers (Tyneside Scottish) 23rd Regiiment and is listed in the book 'Tyneside Scottish' by Graham Stewart and John Sheen as being associated / living at Netherton. Based on the above- and the information from Canny Lass - I believe East Row, shown in the Register of Enlistments was indeed at Netherton. Canny Lass Post 'what you say, I'd hazard a quess that East Row may well be First Street - if it is Netherton and if the year of enlistment is later than the date of construction of the 'modern' housing which included First Street. Prior to the 'modern' houses of First-, Second-, Plessey- and Third Street (built 1905-1909) all houses in the colliery area were Rows. The Francis Pit had Francis Row and South Row. By 1860 these had been renamed New Row and Cross Row. The Howard Pit had Clifton-, Yard- and Howard Row. It's not unlikely that people continued to call the modern housing 'Row' and it's not unreasonable to assume that First Street, given its name, was built in 1905' Thanks to all who have helped to clear this up for me.

    Canny Lass. Thanks for the information. Will try and find military records for the soldiers I have not researched I.e those that survived, against the Register details.

    The list I am using is the Record of Enlistments held at St.Cuthberts Church. The list goes from Glebe Row to - East Row with soldiers house # 10 Brown house #17 Pitchford house #20 Hamilton and house #23 Morton (Thomas Hope) It then goes on to Second Street, Netherton. I have gathered information for the soldiers listed but for my own satisfaction and accuracy I cannot locate East Row. The point made about the handwriting is valid and it is possible East could be First. Unfortuneately none of those listed is shown at East Row in the 1911 Census. In Summary, the Record of Enlistments shows East Row (no town/ viiage) but the 1911 Census, which is the nearest document shows those listed at a variety of other addresses. Thanks for your help

    Thanks for input. East Riggs was not around in 1911, I believe they were built about 1939 / 40. I have identified five soldiers now who lived in East Row when they enlisted. Census 1911 does not help. Their entries are amongst the Netherton Steets and Rows. Is it possible East Row was there in Netherton area? I have no more clues.

    Thanks eggy. East Row was highlighted by a few people in the Record of Enlistments document.. I will do a check against the 1911 Census for their names, might give an answer. Cheers

    Thanks everyone for the all information provided. I have learnt so much about the people I knew in the distant past from this post. It's good to know so many are still around. Whilst I no longer live in Bedlington I use this site frequently to keep abreast of what is happening and enjoy the contents. Thanks

    Jim, thanks for the information it confirms everything in my family tree. Mrs McGlen in the photo would have the maiden name Hobson. Eggy, Is the it ok if I use the photo in my records? Also for my records can you tell me Bellas married name.

    Agree what a great photo, complete with names. I would be very interested to know the first name of the Mrs McGlen. I have quite a bit of detail about the McGlen family. When I was an apprentice at Doctor Pit I was working with Jack Crammer and a William McGlen, another apprentice. When I got home and told my mum who I was working with she told me William McGlen was related and my research since confirms this.

    Ovalteeny, I believe you are correct. The photo with John Brody was taken in my first year with Bedlington Juniors which was about 1963. I started my apprenticeship in October 1962. After that the following season Tex Dixon, Les Nicholson and Harry Wilson played. But it was a long time ago, great photos which brings back the memories.

    Eggy Thanks for the info. I see John Brodie was mentioned. He was a good player and played Sunday League with Cambois Rowing Club when I played with them.
