The Friends of Welford Road Cemetery, Leicester
Invite you to attend their Armistice Day Service on Saturday 9th November 2019 at 10:30 a.m.
The Reverend Lynn Fowkes & Anglican Chaplain Luke Briggs of the University of Leicester Chaplaincy Service will conduct the service to commemorate the commencement WW2 and others form all conflicts.
The service will be held as usual on the Saturday nearest to Armistice Day, attendees are requested to meet at the Visitor Centre at 10:30 am before proceeding to the War Cemetery where the service will take place.
The Friends Group have been holding these services for a number of years and place poppy crosses out for all the people either buried or commemorated on family graves every year, this year approx. 700 crosses will be placed in front of the Wall of Remembrance in the War Cemetery, a task which takes some considerable time and effort, however the result is well worth it as I am sure you will appreciate.
We are hoping that as many members and other interested organisations as possible will be able to attend.
Light refreshments will be served in the Visitor Centre afterwards.
