“Who says we forget the sacrifice of of men and woman who died in conflict
areas of the world?
Well over 100 children and student attended the Friday service of
remembrance at Darwen cemetery organised by the friends.
A fitting tribute to the 90 plus who died in both world wars and other
conflicts – each year are remembered.
After the service of remembrance the young people from over 12 local
schools placed crosses on each grave all if which are adopted by local
groups and individuals.
On Sunday again a remembrance service attended by members of the
community and local scout groups were silent as they remembered
the 1300 casualties from Darwen who died and especially those who are
buried in Darwen Cemetry
We can assure our community that remembering the deaths of local
residents will not be forgotten and the FODC are proud to support the
memory of such brave men and women.
