Melbourne – In Memoriam

With a project aided by Derbyshire Lives Through the First World War, Melbourne Historical Research Group published their book ‘In Memoriam – Commemorating the Men of Melbourne who died in The Great War’.

The year previously in 2014, the group’s annual exhibition was on the effects on Melbourne and District of the First World War,including the results of research, not only into the local people who died during the conflict, but also those who served, and will illustrate some aspects of life in the village at that time. Adrian Earp, whose extensive research provided the basis for the group’s book gave several talks.
