My mother's family lived at no.80 Marsden Street and would sometimes talk about the terrible nights they spent in shelters
listening to the whistling sound getting louder and louder as the bombs dropped and then the thunderous noise at impact.
And then the torment of wondering who had been hit and what sort of scene they would find at street level.

For most of us, we've been very, very fortunate not to have to go through that.

The list of the war dead makes very grim reading.

A shocking list that no doubt is duplicated many times over in many cities of England and elsewhere. May they all rest in peace.

It's stange how a list of names can vividly bring back the past. My mother (now 91), when I was young, often used to recount a story of how some of our relatives had died during the war. They lived in Harper Street, and during an air raid, the husband, who had been drinking, refused to go down to the air-raid shelter.

The wife and her son sought shelter under some stairs. A bomb must have dropped very close to the house and both mother and son were killed. The wall of the house collapsed, and the whole upper floor, still attached on one side of the house, provided a ramp down which the bed, complete with sleeping husband slid down it onto the street, leaving him physically unhurt - though I imagine he would have been mentally scarred by the experience. Looking at the list of dead associated with the war, I see mother and son are listed there, killed in the raid of 10th April 1941. The events of the past suddenly brought starkly to mind.

These photos show he houses at the time they were bombed, and the one with the lads indulging in horseplay shows in the background, the site in 1961 where the houses had been.

Merchant navy officers and crews must not have been classed as Civilian as Shields lost a lot of men.

Siam, Harper Street was bounded by Robertson Street at one end and St Stephen's Churchyard at the the other. Those from the street who lost their lives in that air raid were probably buried in St Stephen's Churchyard, very close to their homes. I know that as kids, on November 5th each year quite unaware of the tragedy that had taken place there such a few years before, we built bonfires on the site where the houses had stood. I also have photos, taken from some site on the Internet (not great quality) showing the houses just after the bombing. It really brings it all home.

Our house in Brodrick Street was among those flattened but fortunately we were staying
at someone else's house that night.

Mr Smith, when I first added my contribution to this thread, you asked about Harper Street, well I have just added two photos to my original post, one showing the street soon after the bomb had dropped, and one showing how the site looked when I was about 17. That's St Stephen's Churchyard in the second photo.

I remember it now Ralph, some interesting photos there. I've seen one on the internet somewhere
of our Street which was bombed at the time. We lived in Brodrick Street and I think the photo was
taken by Amy Flagg. All I can remember from the war years was moving from house to house and
the time we spent in the air raid shelter. Collecting shrapnel was a big thing with the kids back then,
we would be out first thing every morning scouring the gutters for it. I also remember staying quite
a few nights in someones house in Laygate Lane and there used to be an Ack Ack gun right outside
the front door; pounding away all night. I remember too the barrage balloons; looking like large
floating elephants, at least that's how they appeared to a young kid.

I have a list of civilian war dead within South Shields. I have all the casualty details, but not where they are buried. Could anyone possibly tell me how I can find out this information? Thanks
Martin.
