Remembrance Sunday, which this year falls on 8th November, is a day for the whole nation to remember and honour those who sacrificed their lives to secure and protect our freedom.

On Sunday 8th November, Crewe will come together for a service to commemorate the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women in the two World Wars and later conflicts such as the Falklands War, the Gulf War, and other conflicts such as those in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Crewe marks Remembrance Sunday with a parade and ceremony on Memorial Square. Two minutes silence will be held at 11 am to remember all those who have fallen. During the ceremony civic dignitaries, ex-servicemen and women, members of local armed forces regular and reserve units as well as community groups and local organisations will be invited to present their wreaths.

If you wish to register to lay a wreath, please complete this online form by Fri 23rd Oct 2020.

On the day, all those who have pre-registered to present a wreath as part of the ceremony should check-in at the desk in the car park under the library 10:00-10:30 so that we can confirm your attendance on the day.  If you have not pre-registered but would still like to present a wreath, please also check in like everyone else and your name will be added to the end of the list to be called out.

Please be aware that for public safety the roads around Memorial Square will be closed 10:00 – 13:00hrs, so if you are coming to the service you might wish to arrive a little early.  This affects Prince Albert Street and Earle Street (In front of the Municipal Building), but also Hill Street and access to Lyceum Square.  Crewe Street and the Civic Centre/ Library car park will be closed 09:30-10:30 to allow for the parade to line up.  There will be a brief road closure through the town centre when the parade is happening 10:15-10:45, but will be opened once the parade has passed.

Printed copies of the Order of Service will be handed out on the day and you will be able to download your own copy from this page nearer the event date.
