Welcome to the Tutbury Book of Remembrance, dedicated to the people of the Tutbury
area who died during the two World Wars; the origins of the Book can be found on
the About page.
We have completed the 1st edition ready for inclusion on the website for Remembrance
Day 2012; the printed version is being given free to relatives of the Fallen and
to churches, museums and schools in the area; it is available to anyone else for
plus P&P to cover printing costs (contact us here).
It became apparent, as we have been doing the research, that the number of people
involved, i.e. those who died who had connections to Tutbury, was greater than those
listed on the War Memorial, our starting point for the project. Hence for Remembrance
2012 we have published the 1st edition of the book, covering the first 50 Fallen
from WI, these being the 47 from the War Memorial plus W. Harry Walker from the tablet
in St. Mary’s plus Alick Owen and Owen Bunting from a Memorial in the churchyard.
At the time of printing the 1st edition, we are aware of 47 more WWI names to investigate
and 16 from WWII; this research will recommence in spring 2013 to develop the 2nd
Edition‡ of the book- the list can be read here.
If you have any information about the people listed on this website or in the book
or if you have any information about the War Memorial at St. Mary’s, or indeed any
information you think might be useful to us then please contact us - details can
be found on the Contacts page.
