Welcome to our new website
We are really excited to share the stories of the men and women from Staindrop, County Durham who served in WW1. It has been an honour and a privilege to bring their stories to life over the past year.
It was our intention to have all the stories ready for the launch of the website but our research has taken much longer than we anticipated.
However, research continues and more and more families from Staindrop and surrounding areas are contacting us to share stories, photos and memorabilia concerning their relatives who served. And, dare I say, we are becoming more skilled at research so hopefully it won't be too long before we have shared all the stories.
We hope you will visit us regularly as more stories are being added as our research continues.
We are immensely grateful to the lovely people from Purple Creative Studio, Richmond who have built the website for us and are now training us how to manage it. Not an easy task! Thank you Phil, Scarlett and James for bringing our vision to life and for your endless patience!
