If you had an ancestor or relative killed in WW1 who had been a student at Armstrong College, you may find him listed in this project.

Tucked away at the entrance to the Armstrong Building at Newcastle University is a war memorial recording the names of 223 men from the former Armstrong College who died in WW1. University library staff, students, local schools and others have been researching these men to produce the Armstrong WW1 Memorial Digital Memory Book.
