2nd World War child evacuees

Post by Rustic123 » Tue May 16, 2017 12:58 am

I'm tracing my family tree. My mother was apparently evacuated as a child in the 2nd world war from South Shields. Does anyone know where she would have been sent too. Is there a list somewhere of these children?

One of my Aunts was evacuated from South Shields to Stanhope in Co Durham, its a long shot but maybe search there.

I had a couple of relatives who evacuated to Cockermouth in the Lake District.
