North Eastern Banking Company

The extracts shown here (right) come from the 1913 Annual Report and Accounts of the North Eastern banking Company They reveal the opening of a sub branch at Seaton Delaval. These are the final years of the North Eastern Bank, and Seaton Delaval opens just one year before the Bank’s amalgamation with the Bank of Liverpool.

The branch is closed again by the end of the First World War, probably in 1918.  So far, we have not been able to ascertain why the life of this little sub-Branch is so short, but as the Second World War does see the closure of many tiny branches due to staff shortages and/or the general seizing of an opportunity to rationalise, perhaps the fate of Seaton Delavel is similar.

There could also have been a period of consolidation when the Bank of Liverpool absorbed the North Eastern Bank, with “unwanted” branches removed from the portfolio. Our sub branch pages do not usually have a staff gallery, but as Seaton Delavel is such an old and unusual branch, and we do have an image of the parent branch manager, we have made an exception here.  Pictures of our branch might never be found, but as ever, if you can help, please do get in touch with us at the usual address -  gutinfo@btinternet.com .
