    3 Generations Of Miners

    I have looked closely again at the original photo. No indication of photographer. However with photo enlarged the two shield each contain what looks like 11 medals each (one for each player on a team?). The groups of medals on the shields are different style but each has an eye on the top. I think these are not shields but are a display boards to hold the medals. Maybe the photo is to celebrate the winning of two events (e.g. cup and league) and these are the medals to be awarded to the players. What do you think?
  2. As memtioned before, if you are looking for information about your relatives who may have served in the 1914-1918 War you might find their story on this website along with other information about the War Memorials in the area. I have attached two stories to show what is available on this website. While researching these soldiers we find not may photographs are available. If anyone reading this has photos of WW1 soldiers in uniform with information such as name, service number and regiment we would like to add them to this site. 1. Rogers, George Thomas.docx 1.

    My aunt and my family are all from Bedlington and no connections with Ashington. When I got the package of photos which included the team photo my aunt had written on the accompanying letter Bedlington Terriers football team for some reason. She could have been mistaken. I will have another look at the original to see who the photographer was or other clues. Cheers

    Like I said the photo was sent to me a few years ago by my aunt Margaret Peggy Hall who was born in 1925 and last I heard she was still alive. Just checked the back of original photo to see if there are any clues, alas not.

    Happy New Year - 2019

    Was never sure which planet I was on in those days. Checked my records and find on the 16th July 1969 (2.32 pm GMT +1) I was probably (down pit) at Kellingley Colliery. Did I miss anything!

    I see no names on this photo. I think I can name quite a few in the next few days,
  17. Its coming up to 100 years since the First World War ended. The North East War Memorials Project (NEWMP) website is an excellant source of information containing details of the brave men and women who served in that conflict and their memorials. If you are looking for information about your relatives, it may be on this website. See the attached NEWMP leaflet for more information.

    Thanks I was not aware of another Raymond Johnston. My brother had bright ginger hair, guess what his name was? It's now very white and like a wire brush.

    East Street

    Where was East Street? Was it in the Bedlington Area?

    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.

    East Street

    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.

    East Street

    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
