Their Names Liveth For Evermore
The Names of the North Eastern Railwaymen who laid down their lives for King and Country during the Great War are recorded on the nearby Sir Edwin Lutyens Grade II Listed memorial. Time has taken its toll on the masonry and some of the Names cannot now be read. Unfortunately it is not possible to re-carve the Names with any degree of permanence. It is therefore with great respect that we record the Names on these plaques so that future generations will not forget

This memorial was designed in 1921 by the renowned English architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, and built in 1923. It commemorates the 2,236 employees of the North Eastern Railway who were killed in the 1914 - 1918 war.
The additional memorial, which commemorates the 551 fallen in the 1939- 1945 war, was unveiled in 1984, following an appeal launched on the 60th anniversary of the original unveiling.
The names of all the fallen are recorded in a book of remembrance which can be inspected, during normal office hours, at the National Railway Museum.
