Blackwell Parish in WW1

Tony Mellors records the stories of the years 1914 –1918 in Blackwell Parish, near Alfreton, in quarterly Newsletters, mentioning not only the soldiers who left to fight but also stories of those who were left behind, painting as full a picture as possible of life in the parish during that time.  The newsletters are published on a blog at: , and a few hard copies issued around the villages.

The Parish Church light a candle for each of the men lost on the Sunday closest to the 100th anniversary of their death.
