Instead of flowers we ask that you consider a gift to a fund we are establishing in Derek’s memory in partnership with the Institute for Historical Research. The fund is to be used in a way that reflects his work and to support the development of early stage career historians. No donation is too small.

Derek was very supportive and encouraging to his colleagues, especially those at the start of their careers in historical research. We think that the best memorial to Derek would be to continue this support.
