Remembrance Sunday: Wolverhampton to Remember the Fallen

Wolverhampton will fall silent this Sunday, as the city remembers the fallen at its Remembrance Day service.

A Day of National Remembrance Service will take place in Wolverhampton this Sunday.

The service will take place at the cenotaph on St Peter’s Square, military veterans and representatives from the regions armed forces will be in attendence.

They will be joined by civic dignitaries and the Mayor of Wolverhampton, who will lay wreaths after observing the nationwide 2 minute silence at 11am. 
 
The service will be a particularly poignant moment for many after the pandemic saw events cancelled or being held online last year.

Organisers have made the decision to not have a large parade this year due to high Covid-19 infection rates

Any member of the public who wishes to lay a wreath at the cenotaph can do so at the end of the service.

There will be limited space for members of the public to observe the service from around the perimeter of the square. 

Councillor Brackenridge said “Wolverhampton is a city with incredibly close connections to our armed forces community”

“Remembrance Sunday is a solemn occasion where we remember the brave men and women who have given their lives and sustained physical and mental injuries whilst protecting and serving our communities and country – as well as their families.
 
It is important that we stop and remember those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, not only to honour their sacrifice, but also to remember the horrors of war and the danger those in our armed services continue to put themselves in for our country.”

Councillor Brackenridge
