Where to from now? Relatives of the 1945 Newtown teachers might know what happened to the school during wartime. Here's hoping.
The man who took over Robert LANE's job at the end of WW2 was McCONWAY, John Stanley Raymond, b. 29 May 1890, Hebburn. Teacher at New Town Council Boy's School, Hebburn in 1945.
"South Tyneside Remembers WW1" tells us he was formerly Private 16/579 of the Northumberland Fusiliers and Lance Corporal TR/5164265 of the 86th Training Regiment. He received his commission on the 25/06/1917. In 1939 he was living at 20, Park Road, Hebburn as a teacher, he was single and living with his brother Fred S. and his sister Grace. He appears on the Teachers Registration Council Registers 1914/1948, date of registration 01/11/1929 number 76760.
He died in 1963 at the age of 72. His father was William McCONWAY, mother Grace BARBER. Siblings were William B., Robert K., Percy H., Henry J., Fred S., Grace.
McCONWAY descendants might know the story. Even though John Stanley Raymond McCONWAY died single, he had 6 siblings who might have passed on his WW2 story!
