Can you help with our WW1 APPEAL?
Haughton-le-Skerne Local History Society are trying to trace descendants of the families of men from Haughton who served and died in World War One.
There are 18 names on the War Memorial next to St Andrew’s Church, a further 9 names on a plaque in the church itself, and 5 who are commemorated on their parents’ or wives’ gravestones in the churchyard.
For most of them, we already know who they fought with, where they died, what they did and where they lived before the War.
However, we would like as much information about them as we can find. In particular we would like to locate photographs of them and add family memories if possible.
We intend to publish as much as we can about these gallant men later in this 100th Anniversary Year of the outbreak of the Great War.
If you are descended from the families, or know of somebody who is, and have information or pictures you can share with us, please contact NEIL WASTELL by email on firstname.lastname@example.org
The names of the Haughton men are:
