Names from a history of Long Eaton & District

by Arthur Hooper (1954)

Long Eaton is a small manufacturing town in Derbyshire. Its story was told in 1954 by Arthur Hooper, a former local librarian, with the later backing of the Long Eaton Urban District Council. "There is no castle, great House, battlefield or even moorland to give colour to the story" of Long Eaton. The simple typescript has some 140 pages, from which this index has been compiled by Mike Foster of Wellington, New Zealand in May 1995.
