See a biography of Private John Cree.

A plaque was erected in his honour, probably in the Shildon Primitive Methodist Church, Shildon, County Durham, although it has been suggested that it was in the Carriage and Wagons Accountant's office or the Locomotive Accountant's office at Shildon. It is now in the Shildon Sports and Social Club.10

  7. [S421] The Northern Echo, 15 March 2007, Born Cree, "Brought back from the trenches in France, Pte Cree had died in a Stockport hospital just days before his 20th birthday. His coffin was covered in the Union Jack, the last post played by two members of the 1st Shildon Scouts as, in a snowstorm, it was lowered into grave 541 in All Saints churchyard.

    The family were leading members of the Primitive Methodist church in St John's Road, Shildon, then one of seven Methodist churches in the town. John Dixon guesses that the plaque probably hung there - it's not 100 yards from the sports ground - until the chapel's demolition 40 years ago.

    The Durham County Chronicle reported that a large congregation had sung Nearer My God To Thee and God Moves in a Mysterious Way, a theme bravely taken up at the funeral by the Rev John Brewis.
    "That a young man in the flower of manhood should be allowed to be cut down is an enigma to human experience," said the minister. "We cannot understand many of the mysteries of this life, but God is too wise to err in his dealings with us. Pte Cree felt that his country needed him, and he responded to the call.""
