Friday 8th November 2019
This weekend people from all walks of life will be taking time to remember the fallen of the two world wars and other conflicts.
Here in Darwen on the Friday before remembrance day a service is held in the Western cemetery embracing all of the schools in Darwen and invited dignitaries to remember the fallen and those buried here in Darwen.
Many thanks to all who helped to once again make this a service to remember.
If you have time to spare why not have a look at the Memorial wall and spend a moment to remember all and our local lads who gave everything for us.

On the 11th hour on the. 11th day of the 11th month.
101 years ago the guns fell silent and peace for all time was declared.
But unfortunately this was not to be, and on this day we come together to remember and give thanks, services are held in every village and community, and here in Darwen there are several.
Over 120 people attended the service of remembrance at the Memorial wall. Thank you to all who served and attended.
