Story

Trying to raise funds to get Gilbert Young's Headstone re-fixed, since my previous visit to his grave in 2014 his headstone has been laid down and needs to be re-fixed and cleaned. I have been Quoted £1000 to re-fix the headstone and £500 to clean by Ian Wood Memorials of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Inscription on headstone reads:-

HE WAS FOR 56 YEARS IN COMMAND OF THE TYNE LIFEBOATS AND WAS INSTRUMENTAL IN SAVING OVER 1000 LIVES DURING THAT PERIOD THIS STONE HAS BEEN ERECTED BY THOSE WHO HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN HIM

Lets not forget him, please help with raising the requested funds to put his monument back as it should be for a man for spent his life saving others, a bit more about the man, below is a newspaper cutting from the Shields Daily News.
