Remembrance Sunday Ceremonies

Poppy Crosses in Tower Gardens

More wreaths than ever will be laid at the War Memorial in Tower Gardens, King’s Lynn this Sunday, 10 November, as local people gather to pay their respects to all those who have lost their lives in the two World Wars and in conflicts since 1945 up to the present day.

The event will start with a parade from the Town Hall along St James’s Street to the Tower Gardens. The parade will be led by veterans from all three armed services and any veteran wishing to be included in this parade should arrive at the Town Hall yard by 10.15am.

The Mayor will lead a procession of civic representatives from the Town Hall to the War Memorial where she, along with representatives from various organisations, will lay a wreath. Almost 50 wreaths will be laid this year, following which prayers will be led by The Reverend Canon Christopher Ivory of King’s Lynn Minster.

The King’s Lynn Town Band will play solemn music in the Tower Gardens from 10.45am and the civic procession will leave from the Town Hall at the same time, followed by the general procession, consisting of members of the Royal British Legion a contingent from Royal Air Force Marham, members of the three Cadet Forces.

The bugler will play The Last Post, signalling the beginning of the two minutes silence and the start of the ceremony at 11am.

Following the ceremony, at approximately 11.45am, the civic procession will parade to King’s Lynn Minster, where a service will be conducted by the Reverend Canon Christopher Ivory.

Elsewhere in the borough, wreaths will be laid to mark the occasion. Councillor Paul Beal will lay a wreath in Hunstanton and the Deputy Mayor Cllr Barry Ayres will lay a wreath on behalf of the Mayor at St Faith’s Church, Gaywood. The Mayor will also lay a wreath in Downham Market on Sunday afternoon.
