About the memorial: The IWM Register states that "It is not clear if this memorial was ever created, and if so, where it is now." However, they have 14 names which were proposed/entitled to be on it. I have placed the pin position on Newcastle-upon-Tyne station as this was, in 1914, the largest station on the NER so is the most likely location. An alternative would be York where the main NER WW1 memorial is located. Each man had also had a death notice published in the magazine contemporaneously.
