Remembrance Sunday services across Wirral
2:00pm Saturday 9th November 2013 in News
SERVICES will take place across Wirral tomorrow in honour of the borough's war dead.
The Mayor of Wirral, Cllr Dave Mitchell, will join servicemen and women, their families and representatives of the armed forces at the Cenotaph in Hamilton Square, Birkenhead.
Mayor Mitchell said: "On Remembrance Sunday, people of all ages gather around the world to remember those who gave their lives in service of their country and to reflect on the loss felt by their families and friends who were left behind.
"We also remember the brave men and women who are, right now, making enormous sacrifices for our freedom and a more peaceful world.
"I am incredibly proud to lead and represent the people of Wirral as we honour those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and show that they have not been, and will never be, forgotten.
"We will always honour and appreciate their courage."
The Hamilton Square ceremony will take place at the recently-restored and extended Cenotaph which now includes the names of servicemen and women who lost their lives in the Great War, those awarded the Victoria or George Cross, 1,100 local people killed in action during the Second World War and those who have fallen in other conflicts since 1945.
