Darlington residents invited to learn more about local fatalities of World War One
DARLINGTON residents who want to learn more about local people who died in the First World War should visit Crown Street Library on November 9.
Researcher Stephen Nicholson is holding a drop-in event where he will share his extensive knowledge of the Great War’s fatalities.
Mr Nicholson has researched in detail each of the local men who died, including their life before the war and the circumstances of their death.
Using even seemingly trivial facts he has managed to create an in-depth picture of the lives and deaths of Darlington’s casualties of war.
The event is for people who feel they have any information they can share with Mr Nicholson, and for those who want to find out more about those who fell.
The sessions will be split into free 15 minute slots - from 10am to noon and 1pm to 3pm - which must be booked.
Mr Nicholson’s aim is to create a website which can be used by local schools and societies for educational purposes.
For more information or to book a place, contact 01325-349630, email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the Centre for Local Studies at Crown Street Library.
