A tribute to the soldiers of Belper and Milford who died during the ‘Great War’ has gone on show to the public this week as part of the town’s First World War commemorations.

The roll of honour - which was commissioned by philanthropist George Herbert Strutt - went on display at St John’s Heritage Centre, Belper on Monday, August 4.

Two-hundred and seventy-five men from Belper lost their lives during the war. Thirty six of the men named on the Belper Memorial died during the Battle of the Somme from Saturday, July 1, 1916 to November 18, 1916.
