Roll of Honour

Twenty five men from this church died during the Great War. They are also listed on a plaque in the church, and this can be viewed here


Private Stanley Levell was one of those unfortunate enough to die on Armistice Day. West Hartlepool is a port, so we should note that two men died serving in the Merchant Navy. In some cases it has proved difficult to find full details of the men.
