*The Matlock Bath MIs on these two pages would not have been possible without the hard work of Dr. John Davies who spent many hours taking down everything on these memorials for the church and, in some cases, comparing it with the registers. Thank you also for the help given by and co-operation of the DARG, the Derbyshire FHS for use of their published material, the Vicar of Holy Trinity, Matlock Bath and his team, to Rita Effnert in Germany for typing the MIs from the DFHS fiche and to John Palmer for his invaluable help as always - all of whom have given written permission to reproduce their copyright material. I am extremely grateful to them all. What is published on these pages has been as carefully checked as possible by the webmistress, comparing typewritten material with the fiche and information provided by the church.
