Remembrance Sunday, which falls on Sunday 13th November in 2022, is a day for the whole nation to remember and honour those who sacrificed their lives to secure and protect our freedom.
The event commemorates the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars, later conflicts such as the Falklands War, the Gulf War, and other conflicts such as those in Afghanistan and Iraq.
In 2022, two Remembrance Services will be held in Memorial Square, Crewe town centre:
- Friday 11th November - Armistice Day (for schools - by invitation)
- Sunday 13th November at 10.15am (in association with the Crewe branch of the Royal British Legion - all welcome)
On Remembrance Sunday, the Parade will depart at 10.20am from underneath the old Library on Prince Albert Street, leading to Memorial Square. At 11am a two-minute silence will be observed.
Please note that the following road closures will be in effect from 10am until 1pm:
