This is the Peak Forest memorial www.militaryimages.net/media/frederick-greville-egerton.75099/ which seems to be the same one in the Black & White Budget photograph. I read a contemporary article in The Derbyshire Times (but am unable to access it right now) about the people of Peak Forest subscribing to the memorial.

The Rev. George Rogerson was Vicar at Peak Forest in 1901, so I think the Black & White Budget got it wrong by saying it was a Stockport church.

His death certainly seems to have struck a chord with the people of Ladysmith, at the time.

SWB wrote: In the Black & White Budget for May 5, 1900 there is a picture of a memorial to Egerton "in Stockport Church". I have been unable to find this "Stockport Church". Looking at the NIWM record for the memorial in Forest Peak the description and inscription match that tablet illustrated in B&W.

Begs the question, would this memorial have been moved from Stockport to Forest Peak?


The article in The Derbyshire Times (6th January 1900) includes the following: - "The Vicar of Peak Forest (the Rev George Rogerson) is executing the lettering and fixing."
