Howden-le-Wear History Society shares 50 stories

Remembering Our Fallen

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund history society members have researched fifty stories of the men commemorated on their local war memorials at Howden-le-Wear and Fir Tree. Early in 2015 they published their research in a book ‘Remembering Our Fallen: The Great War 1914-1918’ and you can read summaries of each man’s story on the Society’s website:

This month the History Society generously offered to share the complete stories on Durham at War and we’ll let you know when these start to go online. We already have a volunteer preparing the data.

In the meantime, if you’d like to buy a copy of the book and support Forces’ charities, only £5 plus £2 postage, please contact

This would make a nice Christmas present!
