The bells of this Cathedral were rung today 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 Jesmond was killed. We rang to celebrate his life and the ultimate sacrifice that he made.
Corporal Reginald Samuel Eaton
Reginald Eaton, born 1895 in Heaton, was the Son of Elizabeth Mercy Eaton of 41, Forsyth Road, West Jesmond and the late Samuel Eaton. Reginald was employed as a shipping clerk. After enlisting in Newcastle upon Tyne he embarked for France on 7/9/1917 with the East Yorkshire Regiment, 4th Bn., service No. 31003. He died on 15/11/1917 aged 22.
Reginald is commemorated at the Tyne Cot memorial in Belgium on panel 47 – 48 & 163A, on the bellringers Roll of Honour at St. Pauls Cathedral in London, in Jesmond at the Church of St. George where he rang and on the bellringers memorial plaque in Newcastle Cathedral.
