Welcome to the Courage of Conscience website 


As we are now approaching  the end of the project and all of the research and strands of work  come together this website will be frequently updated.

Please visit the site often over the coming weeks to see how the research has been used to create an archive of teaching materials , creative writing, exhibition materials and published  work which  we hope will be a lasting tribute to the brave men and women of Derbyshire who stood for peace during WWI and who’s stories can  inspire future generations to say NO to WAR and stand for peace.

We  invite you to  join us for the Special Event on 23rd June 2016, when we will share the stories of the Derbyshire Conscientious Objectors.   Details below…


About chesterfieldcoc

The Courage of Conscience project aims to discover and celebrate the stories of Derbyshire conscientious objectors, other resisters to the war, and their families. We hope to raise awareness about the brave men and women who went against the national tide of opinion and enormous government and public pressure, and remained true to their principles by opposing the war and refusing to take up arms.
