As part of the group’s commemoration of the Great War, our members have undertaken detailed research into the casualties who are commemorated on the various memorials in Skelton, New Skelton, North Skelton, Skelton Green and Brotton. Links to searchable summary files in PDF format are given below. If you have interest in specific men, please use the Contact page to ask your question of us. We cannot guarantee to know all the answers, but what we know we will pass on to you. Conversely, if you have knowledge of and material relevant to any of the men, especially if it corrects errors, we’d like to hear from you.
