Jarrow Mayors

Great information - thanks so much. As I'm not local, it is difficult to even be sure of relevant councils & newspapers etc, so these are really helpful pointers.
I think there was only one son, and 4 Gordon daughters, of which my granny was one, so Karen is presumably his daughter. It would be fabulous to get in contact with her if possible
Thanks again

Hello Cait, I'm still stuggling to work this site-so forgive any messes-I'm interested in the George Alexander Rose the Mayor in 1944. He is somesort of relation -great uncle or somesuch. Apparently my Grandfather Robert Dobbie Ross used to refer to him as 'Silver Willie' not sure if that is a derogatory or friendly remark! In Ellen Wilkinson's book 'the Murder of a town' she is full of praise for him. Has anyone on your site got any info or photo of him please?

Just to say some more photo's to come on site of Harry Duggan,I got an album off Mrs.Duggan a couple of week's ago,but I've had to take photo's of the picture's that were in album as they were to awkward to scan, and they're actually stuck on to the page's of album so I'm busy cropping the photo's to put on site.hopefully the next couple of day's.

My Dad was Norman, brother of George, and my Mum was Elsie. It would be lovely to hear from anyone who knows my family.

I am looking to get in contact with the family of Dennis McCluskey, in particular his son Brian McCluskey. If there are any family members here or anyone who knows how I could get in contact with him I would be so grateful for your help!
