MILLBROOK REMEMBERS

In 2018, to commemorate the one hundreth anniversary of the armistice, which signalled the end to fighting in the First World War, a small group of Millbrook villagers drew up a plan to ensure this important anniversary did not slip by without full recognicence of the sacrifices of the brave few who were not to return to Millbrook.

The names of all the servicemen were researched and in most cases the last known address in the village for them or their family was known.

The sixty one men were each remembered by a poster bearing his name and service details and in most cases this was on display at their previously known address though the first half of November 2018. The posters formed a commemorative walk which served as a stark reminder of the impact such bereavement would have had on the community.

Volunteers also decorated the Tan Yard, adding to the commemoration. Images can be seen in the A - Z files below.

The biographies for each of the men is available through this website and this information, in paper format, along with some death certificates, photographs and service records is also on public display in All Saintsí Church.

Millbrook Parish Council assisted in many ways. The production of a pamphlets entitled 'COMMEMORATION WALK & EXHIBITION' and 'CIVIL SERVICE ON REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY 2018' give dramatic testonomy to the full extent of the sacrifice made - the poppies placed on house locations of the village map cannot fail to evoke many emotions associated with death and war and community.

Permission to publish these documents has been given by the Millbrook All Saints Church Remembrance Committee and the Parish Clerk to the Millbrook Parish Council, Cornwall.
