Matlock Bath: Remembrance Day, about 1930
Remembrance Sunday

Local residents and dignitaries remembering the dead about 1930. Various officials, wearing their chains of office, are standing on the left to hear the service conducted by a local vicar. A member of the armed forces is in attendance on his right, in front of the memorial. Matlock Bath's Cubs, Scouts and Rovers were also at the service. The tradition is still kept up today; Charles Beresford reads out the list of names of those who lost their lives in both World Wars.
