The Daily Record, 18 July 1916 :-

'More wounded Arrive'
Two hospital trains arrived in Glasgow yesterday, one carrying 120 wounded for Cambuslang Hospital and the other close on 200 for Stobhill Hospital. There were few stretcher cases and the majority of the wounds were on the head and arms. Those belonging to Scottish Regiments were:-

Royal Scots - Pte. John Waterhouse (17501)

Wow, thats some pretty logical thinking regarding room numbers, thank you for that. And I was just in the process of figuring out just where the house was in relation to current buildings. Time to hunt out some old photos ;)

I have many books on the south east part of  Northumberland but unfortunately there isn't any images of Oldgate Street. I have found 'online' an image (pre 1903) which shows the clock tower with Oldgate Street disappearing behind it - I have indicated the approximate position of 18 to 22 Oldgate Street. I have also attached an image of the Royal Mail delivery office which now stands on the site of 18 to 22 Oldgate Street.

Many apologies for posting a copyright image.

And finally, the address and schedule. The Dunn's at 20 Oldagte are also in my tree (schedule 108), with the Taylor's at schedule 109, though no addresss before hand. Would this indicate they lived in the same house, just seperating the familys by schedule number, or the house was a split into flats? Or just that the address wasn't noted and they lived next door?

TIA :)

The 1911 Census for Oldgate, Morpeth shows that most of the houses were occupied by several households, each declaring how many rooms they had. The entry for 20 Oldgate, reveals that the householder was a John Thomas Watson (a market gardener) along with his wife and two children. They took boarders in and when the 1911 Census was taken, there are 7 boarders listed. The entry shows that 20 Oldgate consisted of 7 rooms (excluding the usual scullery, kitchen, bathroom etc).

At some stage (possibly late 1950s early 1960s) part of Oldgate was demolished on the Royal Mail Delivery Office now occupies 18-22 Oldgate.

The final of the Durham Benevolent Cup took place on the 25th March 1922 at Bishop Auckland. The two teams were Crook Town and Stockton.

In case you don't have this, there are deaths of two children of Richard and Elixabeth.

Harriet Louisa Marion died 21 May 1871
Richard Albert died 24 May 1871

Morning Boo,

Thank you for showing your search method --- a couple of years ago I too was looking for Longframlington and failed, I ended up having to spend a few hours across at the Archives.
