Two pages in the IBEW Reference section deal with these topics. Extinct Brass Bands is an attempt to collect and collate information about bands that are no longer in existence. Any suggestions for inclusion, or better still details about the bands themselves, would be very welcome. The Brass Band Genealogy lists the founding dates of bands together with their various name changes, mergers and predecessors. Again, any additions, further information or even corrections are sought. As published sources about specific brass bands are very sparse and, sadly, those that remember the older bands are gradually disappearing, the IBEW is trying to capture any nuggets of knowledge about our brass band heritage that exist and make them available to a wider audience.
