Wheatley Hill Burial Index

Transcription of the burial index for Wheatley Hill (1907-1961) is now complete. It provides a fascinating insight into village life over the years and is available in The Heritage Centre for genealogical purposes. As far as we know the Wheatley Hill Burial Book is the only one in the County that remains in the hands of the Parish and is not in the County Records Office. As such, it is the property of the Wheatley Hill Parish Council and cannot be copied or removed.

Local History Day 2006 and Book Launch

Yet another successful book launch. Almost 300 people through the doors and over �2000 raised.

The book was certainly a major attraction to the day but the living history group, The Heugh Battery from Hartlepool also added to the authenticity - their camp on land next to the WMC was excellent.

Inside the Club, Peter's vast collection of original WW1 memorabilia raised a few eyebrows! He had a most impressive selection of clothing and other equipment.

Elsewhere Nurse Mary Walker was very efficient in her treatment of the sick and the North East War Memorials Project was kept busy throughout the day. Our singer, Christine Milburn with her collection of wartime songs added to the atmosphere throughout the morning.
