Yesterday, in the middle of a Working Day, we held an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial at our Parish Church. 60 Adults came, along with three classes from the local primary school and the whole of their year six.

The service taken by our Curate was lovely, short but to the point. Afterwards, all of those came into church for refreshments and I had the pleasure of taking different groups of children through the names on the Memorial, and additional names of the Civilian War Dead, who never made any memorial from WW2.

Many of the children were able to recognize names of great grand parents from WW1 or WW2 - and we could talk about someone that they, or their parents had never known, but who lived here before them. I had used Family Search to find out where they had lived in censuses and the children, who live in the parish, could recognise those street names.

This is becoming a service to the wider community as we have put the lists up on our website and it's getting lots of hits.

Keeping the memory of those who died in war, military or civilian is extremely important to our community.

Excellent Ernest :biggrin:
I used to be involved with children of all ages when I ran different groups, Cubs, Brownies, Sunday School, Youth club and Junior drama to name a few (there are more :wink: ) and I always felt privileged to be a part of those children's lives and experiences ...I wish I could have been with you yesterday Ernest.
I miss that contact with children. But thank you for reminding me of what I have had :biggrin:
