News - November 2011 - February 2012


From Kay's list (see below) and information from Chris Tipper we are going to include George Henry Tipper in the book; his address was given as Tutbury Road, Hatton (a number on the War Memorial were from what would now be called Hatton) and he died aged 23 in August, 1918 in the "Great Push to Victory" as it was known.


Kay (who has supplied us with much excellent information in the past) has told us of another group of individuals who were born in Tutbury and died in WWI but are not on the War Memorial who will be worth investigating.  It may be that they moved away from Tutbury and hence were not included but we will attempt to identify them and included them in the book where it is fitting.


Contacted the Oddfellows to see if they had any information about their members in Tutbury in WWI and the former Oddfellows Hall in Tutbury - all their relevant archives are already in the Tutbury Museum but this also lead to contact with Chris Tipper whose family comes from Tutbury and who is related in various ways to some of the WWI casualties.


A number of contacts with and briefing papers for the Parish Council and Civic Society suggesting that it would be a mark of respect to have the War Memorial at St. Mary's. renovated in time for the centenary of the start of the First World War in two years time.


Main website page updated to recognise that some of the men in WWI were from the Hatton area - just across the river.
