The Sunderland Weekly News 28/4/1922 contains the following letter:

N.E.R. War Memorial
Dear Sir, - The North Eastern Railway Company are about to erect at York a memorial to commemorates the members of their staff who fell in the Great War. It is proposed to inscribe on the memorial the names of all the Company’s staff who lost their lives in the war, with any military decorations or distinctions which they gained. A full list of names has been compiled for this purpose, and we are anxious to do everything possible to ensure that all the particulars shown are correct. In order that the relatives and friends of the men whose names are included may have an opportunity of consulting the list and informing us of any additions or corrections which should be made, a copy of the list has been placed at each of the principal passenger stations on the system, and can be examined there at any time up to the end of April.
You will realize that the checking of the list is of great interest to a considerable number of your readers, and I should very much appreciate the publication of this letter drawing attention to the arrangements we are making.
Yours faithfully,
(Signed) R.L. Wedgwood.
