The bells of All Saints Church, Stranton were rung this evening 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 this tower was killed in action. We rang to celebrate his life and the ultimate sacrifice that he made.
Acting Bombardier Joseph William Jobling.
Joseph Jobling, born in 1878, was married to Elizabeth. They lived at 68, Wansbeck Gardens, West Hartlepool. They had a son, Edgar, aged 10 at the time of Joseph’s death. Joseph had been a primary school teacher. He served with the 265th. Siege Bty. Royal Garrison Artillery. His service number was 113917. He died aged 39, on the 18th. September 1917. Buried in the Huts Cemetery, West-Vlaanderen close to Ypres in Belgium, he was posthumously awarded the Victory Medal and the British War Medal.
His name is recorded on the ringer’s plaque in Newcastle Cathedral.
Joseph Jobling we have remembered you.
