World War One

Over the Top

As part of our commemoration of the centenary of World War One we have produced a regular newsletter which features stories from the War. In particular we commemorate those servicemen from the Stockton area who died during the conflict. In each newsletter the men who died will be recorded, along with any information gathered about their lives.

Stockton’s 1245

Stockton’s Book of Remembrance lists the names of 1245 soldiers who were killed during the First World War. Using census and Commonwealth War Graves data staff and volunteers have researched those 1245 men and added their details to a map of the area. The extent of the loss suffered by the town can be seen as street by street the markers representing each soldier accumulate. View the map below or click here for a larger version.
