Alderman William Allison

Birtley PM Church

By David Allison

Alderman William Allison , my Great- Grandfather , was a Sunday School teacher at Birtley    PM Church from 1858 and a Local Preacher from 1864 . His Golden Jubilee as a  Local Preacher was celebrated on May12th 1914 in the Co-operative Hall, Birtley at a meeting at which he was presented with an Illuminated Address marking the occasion. The meeting was reported in the  local newspaper and I have a cutting giving many names of participants at the meeting. I have recently begun research into my family background in Birtley and Chester-le-Street and would be pleased to hear from anybody who has links to those places.
