Crich Brass Band

Cliff Raven sent the picture of Crich Brass Band of around 1902, below.  He and some others have unearthed some pictures and information about the band, which has been given its own page on the Crich parish website – see: www.crichparish.co.uk/webpages/crichbrass.html

Cliff’s grandfather, George Hawksley, was one of the founders of the band in 1884 before he moved to Nottinghamshire and joined the Silverhill Coliery Band at Skegby.

Another fascinating photo which leads to two more bands being identified and added to the IBEW archive – though nothing more is known about the Silverhill band at present.
