War Memorials Project. October 2016
Do you know where this Buxton memorial to WW2 dead is located?
The Society has recently been invited by Civic Voice to participate in a project to locate and record the condition of all war memorials in the UK. This is supported by a number of organisations including War Memorial Trust, Historic England and others, as part of the centenary celebrations of the First World War. Funds are available to renovate those in the poorest condition and to establish a definitive record of the memorials.
Memorials have to be visited and their location, type and condition noted and photographed. The results are then entered at War Memorials Online. A start has been made but as there are a large number of memorials in Buxton and surrounding area members will visit those in their vicinity. More information, forms, and assistance can be obtained from John via the contact link on the website;
or visit www.warmemorialsonline.org.uk where a video can be viewed and forms downloaded.
Answer: Kents Bank School, now the library, but you will have to ask to see it as the area is now an enclosed courtyard, not freely accessible, or visit LINK HERE
