A remarkable couple has developed a fantastic record of war heroes from a Chesterfield village in time for people to research the 100th anniversary of the start of World War One.

Sally Mullins and her husband were so moved by the work of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission they set out in 1998 to build a comprehensive body of work about the Great War and Brimington’s soldiers and fallen soldiers.

Pictured is Sally Mullins with a picture of Brimington World War One hero Fred Greaves during one of her research trips on the continent.

Sally said: “With little knowledge of the men of our village who fought and died we put our new computer to the test.”
