 The Group would like to acknowledge the generous assistance given by the staff of the Durham Light Infantry Museum, Easingwold Library, Green Howards Museum, Northallerton County Archive, West Yorkshire Museum and York Reference Library. 

 They would also like to thank the holders of the following sources - School Log Books for the National School, the Wesleyan School and the Council School, School Registers, Annual Report of Inspectors 1899, Minutes of Council School 1907-1982, School Correspondence, Correspondence and Minute Books for Village Hall and Playing Fields, Parish Magazines (C & F Hutchinson)

 The printing of this book would not have been possible without help from the North Yorkshire County Council Millennium Fund, the Awards For All Lottery Grant for Local Groups and the Stillington Millennium Fund.

 The Group is very grateful for all contributions.  There was much more material than could be printed in a book of this size, so inevitably some had to be left out. The intention is to assemble all the material into an archive for future reference.  Contributors can be assured that nothing will be wasted.
