Millbrook Remembers



In 2018, to commemorate the centenary of the Armistice, which signalled the end of fighting in the First World War, members of All Saints’ Parochial Church Council drew up a plan to ensure that this important anniversary did not pass by without full recognition of the sacrifices of the brave few who were not to return to Millbrook.
The names of the servicemen were researched and in most cases the last known address in the village for them or their family was discovered.
The sixty one men were each remembered by a poster bearing his name and service details and with the cooperation and participation of current residents this was on display at the last known address from 1-12 November 2018. The posters formed a commemorative walk which served as a stark reminder of the impact such scale of bereavement would have had on the community.
Volunteers, in cooperation with Millbrook Parish Council, 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 (see below) and this information, in paper format, along with some death certificates, photographs and and service records is also on public display in All Saints’ Church.

Thanks to a generous donation from the Mendennick Solar Farm Fund a pamphlet was published which gave dramatic testimony to the full extent of the sacrifice made and the village map marked with sixty one poppies on house locations cannot fail to evoke many emotions associated with death, war and community.
Permission to publish all these documents has been given by All Saints’ Parochial Church Council and the Parish Clerk of Millbrook Parish Council.
