As well as the memorials mentioned above, there is another that was created by Bolckow & Vaughan to commemorate those of their employees who paid the final sacrifice. It can be found on display in Kirkleatham Old Hall Museum.
The two sections from that memorial which are relevant to our villages are those for North Skelton mine and South Skelton mine. Click on the images below to open a searchable PDF file giving a transcription of the names from that mine. Please note that neither image is from the Great War era.
