Sunderland City Council.

Sculptor, Artist or Designer

Compiled by Roland Riddell.


1. On Armistice Day 2000, the first bound copy was handed over to the Mayor of Sunderland. Another copy was presented to the City Library. The copy dedicated in May was a third copy.

2. Sunderland Old Township Heritage Society helped with obtaining a grant.

3. The three volumes are dedicated to the memory of Mr. Riddell’s daughter, Susan, who died at the age of 30 in 1996.

4. The volume was compiled after Mr. Riddell starting searching for information about his grandfather, Jacob Aldridge, who was killed and is listed on the memorial at Thiepval. Mr. Riddell was amazed to find there was no record of all the Wearsiders who had died in the Great War.

5. The church is now managed by The Churches Conservation Trust.
