Final Resting Place

Preston Cemetery, North Shields

The majority of those killed at Wilkinsons are buried at Preston Cemetery, North Shields.

The headstones are located throughout this beautiful cemetery according to denomination. However, there is a communal plot for those¬†victims buried at the Borough’s expense. All have similar headstones (modelled on CWG headstones). This area can be found by walking up to the top end from the main entrance. Once past the Victorian/Edwardian graves bordered by hedges, the graves appear on your left.

18 family headstones remain unfound/missing from their cemetery plots.
