THE SUMMERSTOWN 182


We are in the process of researching and telling the stories of each of the 182 names on the St Mary’s Church war memorial. It is a mammoth task, but absolutely vital, as each one adds something to our understanding of this area and what it endured. The above photo is of Samuel McMullan with his wife Mabel and their baby daughter Joyce. The picture was supplied by Joyce’s niece who happened to come across our website when casually searching online. Samuel worked at the Anglo American Laundry and lived for some time at a house on Franche Court Road.

Our stories shine a light on the lives of the Summerstown182 and that of their families. Where they lived and how they earned a living. How they ended up where they did and the circumstances of their deaths. Over this four and a half year commemoration period, we are dedicated to researching and writing something about each of them. By the end of October 2017 we will have completed 165 stories.

HAVE A LOOK AT THE ROLL OF HONOUR ON OUR BLOG WHICH HAS ALL THE STORIES
