To help researches who are unable to visit in person we are able to take photographs of headstones, war memorials, houses and shops in Darlington for you. We can also provide old photographs or postcards of some locations and suggest Darlington family history resources which you may find useful.

There is no charge for this service but a small donation to support the work of St Teresa’s Hospice in Darlington would be appreciated.

If you would like to have a photograph taken on your behalf please contact history@aboutdarlington.co.uk with the details. For headstone photographs please provide the grave number, or in the case of West Cemetery, the section, row and headstone number from the headstone inscriptions database. We are usually able to supply the requested photographs with a few days, weather permitting.

Other resources for Darlington family history research include the Darlington Register Office online database of Darlington births, deaths and marriages, the Darlington Book of Remembrance, the database of West Cemetery headstone inscriptions created by the Darlington Historical Society, transcribed names on the North East War Memorials Project, the North East Railways in WW1 Records and the Darlington Local Studies Centre at Crown Street Library.

    • The Local Studies Centre at the Crown Street library in Darlington would be the best place to find information on your family. They have parish records, registers of electors, historic street directories and lots of other resources for family history research.

      It may be useful to contact them in advance to check that they have the information that you need – email local.studies@darlington.gov.uk or telephone 01325 349630.
