DescriptionRYHOPE CRESSY VICTIM Mrs. Lowery, of 57, Double Burdon Street, Ryhope Colliery, has received a telegram from the Admiralty announcing that her husband William Lowery, stoker on H.M.S. Cressy is dead. Mr. Lowery who was a Reservist, was employed as a deputy overman at Ryhope Colliery, and when the war broke out he was called up to join his ship. He was the eldest son of the late John and Jane Ann Lowery, who were residents of Ryhope practically all their lives. Mr. Wm. Lowery, who was only 39 years of age, leaves a widow and five children to mourn his loss. He was extremely well liked and respected in Ryhope, and a good deal of sympathy is felt for Mrs. Lowery in her sad bereavement. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 30th of September 1914. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images and have any stories and information to add please comment below.
