Durrant. On Rev. Hyde's right are 2nd Lieut. A. N. Hare (curate of All Saints') and Capt W. H. Worthington. E. B.

In 1915 the names of those serving in the Army who had been in the All Saints' (Matlock) Company were F. Bagshaw, F. Tomlinson, H. Sellors and F. Durrant (Derbyshire Advertiser and Journal, 8 May 1915). All four were named as serving in the Derbyshire Advertiser and Journal (8 May 1915) and a Church Lads Brigade's "The Brigade" supplement (June 1915), which has an entry for them under Called to the Colours. Henry Sellors, F. Bagshaw, actually Frank Ernest Robert Bagshaw of Hackney Lane, survived as did Sgt. Durrant. Thomas Frederick Tomlinson is commemorated on Matlock War Memorial.
