Today the bells of this Cathedral Church of St. Nicholas were ringing as part of “Ringing to Remember” the Durham & Newcastle Association of Church Bellringers First World War Ringing Commemoration.
On this day one hundred years ago a bellringer from St. Cuthbert’s Church, Darlington was killed. We rang to celebrate his life and the ultimate sacrifice that he made.

Joseph was the Son of William and Anne Ainsley living at Woodside Cottages, Blackwell Lane, Darlington. Joseph, service no. 13740, served in the 7th. Btn. King’s Shropshire Light Infantry and is buried in Dickebusch Cemetery, West Vlaanderen in Belgium, grave C27. His name is recorded on the ringers plaque in this Cathedral.
