THOUSANDS paid tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country in Remembrance Sunday services across Wirral.

Leading the tributes at the Royal British Legion services was Mayor of Wirral, Councillor Ann McLachlan.

She joined service men and women, their families and representatives of the armed forces at The Cenotaph in Hamilton Square, Birkenhead, before heading to Thornton Hough’s memorial service.

There were also services at war memorials in Bebington, Eastham, Bromborough, Wallasey, and New Brighton, Moreton and Port Sunlight.

A remembrance service on Grange Hill in West Kirby was followed by a parade into the town.

During an Armistice Day ceremony at Flaybrick cemetery in Bidston on Saturday, 200 casualties of WW1 were honoured with a poppy cross placed on each of their  graves  

A wreath was laid on behalf of the council by the mayor, Ann McLachlan.

The ceremony and also the last opening of the chapels this year was organised by the volunteers and friends of Flaybrick and were well attended by over 80 people.
