Hebburn lies just to the North East of Gateshead, and has been left off the map that was produced for Martins Bank by Geographia Ltd in 1968, and published in Four Centuries of Banking Vol II.

The Branch here was opened in 1880 by the North Eastern Banking Company, and passes to Martins through the 1914 amalgamation of the NEBC and the Bank of Liverpool, and the subsequent amalgamations that will lead to the creation of Martins Bank Limited.

Nowadays the town has been immortalised in a TV comedy series, and Martins Bank’s Branch at Hebburn belongs to a firm of funeral directors, which proves perhaps that Hebburn really is a place on earth…  There is no recorded visit to Hebburn Branch by Martins Bank Magazine, but there are a number of staff images in the gallery below,  and a short retirement article which is pulished in the Autumn 1946 edition, to say goodye to Mr McConway,  manager of Hebburn for nearly thirty years…
