The original deed was set up by Mr Thomas Campbell Futers in memory of his son Norman Ratcliffe Futers who was a mining student at Armstrong College University of Durham and who laid down his life in defence of his country on 18 September 1918.
Mr Futers Snr wished to perpetuate the memory of his son and encourage and advance the cause of education and of promoting the study of scientific and safe working of mines.
