Toby Perkins MP: “Michael Caulfield will be sadly missed”

Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins has paid his respects to former Chesterfield Mayor and Honorary Alderman Michael Caulfield who died on Sunday 16th June.

Alderman Caulfield was elected to Chesterfield Borough Council as Labour member for Moor ward in 1970. He represented the ward continuously until 1987, when he was elected as member for Dunston ward, which he represented until 1999.

He served as Chairman of the Environmental Services and Control Committee from 1978 to 1995 and as Mayor of the Borough in 1984-85.

In 2004, Chesterfield Borough Council conferred the title of Honorary Alderman on Mr Caulfield in recognition of his many years of service to the people of Chesterfield.

Commenting on Alderman Caulfield’s death, Chesterfield MP Toby Perkins said: “Alderman Caulfield served our Borough diligently as a Councillor for almost 30 years. Many residents, particularly those living in the Dunston and Moor wards, will remember Michael as a hard-working advocate and consistent voice for our community.

“He will be sorely missed and my thoughts are with his family at this sad time.”


Alderman Caulfield’s funeral has been scheduled to take place at St Hugh’s RC Church, Littlemoor, at 11am on Tuesday July 2nd.

The service will be followed by light refreshments in Committee Room 1 at the Town Hall.

His family has said that those wishing to pay their respects are most welcome at both the Church and the Town Hall afterwards.
