We are volunteer led initiative to preserve the heritage of Stillington, North Yorkshire, and its surrounding district, in the form of still and moving images, documents and oral narratives.


Forty for the Fourth!

Having achieved the aim of detailing the service histories of forty individuals (39 men and one lady) listed by the 4th August to commemorate the centenary of the start of WW1 we know have added three more men to our list!

They were all born in Stillington and are - Henry James King of the RFA; our longest serving man Lawrence Edward North of the 18th Hussars and then the Royal Tank Corps, who went out with the BEF in August 1914 and was demobbed in May 1919 and one of our shortest serving men - William Smith, who did 52 days in 1918 with the Royal Engineers.
