Congregational Church Memorial Plaque
Some years ago Robert Minchin did an exhaustive survey of all the memorials in Tutbury covering the churchyards, church interiors, museum, etc.
Part of this survey records a “framed war memorial” “on the balcony” of the Congregational, Ebenezer, church in Monk Street, recording 7 men who Fell during WWI and a further 26 who served.
We have been told that it was thought to have been damaged during the restoration of the church and the remains discarded, which seems very sad. We were also told that the balcony was only a storage location, not the memorial’s original location. Information about the restoration was on the Congregational website but has subsequently been removed – contact the Ebenezer Chapel via the Congregational Federation website.
If anyone has any information about the Congregational Church’s memorial, particularly a photograph or details of it’s origins or demise, we would be most grateful –
The names on the Plaque are recorded as:

Those who served:
T H Bailey
