When the NEWMP website was set up in 2006, it was designed to host up to 5,000 files in a searchable website At that time, we had 2500 War Memorial Files!

In 2018 we are faced with a crisis.

We now have 4,834 War Memorials identified in the area from the Tweed to the Tees as well as all the Every Name A Story entries, the Parish Pages, District and County Pages and the North East Notes. We have over 20,000 pages at It is creaking at the seams.

Since 2010, we have had over 316,000 visitors and 1,846,082 page visits. NEWMP is well used and well respected. It is a unique website. No other area in the country has its War Memorials recorded in such depth and detail.

We wish to safeguard our website for the future but that takes Money.

If you believe like us that is an indispensable resource for the History and Heritage of the North East and should continue to be available for the people of the North East and those with North East Connections please consider making a donation.
