Bramley War Memorial volunteers prepare for Remembrance services

13 October 2015

Volunteers are hard at work completing the arrangements for the Remembrance Sunday service in Bramley.

Members of the Friends of Bramley War Memorial group say between 300-500 people are expected to attend.

One of the organisers, Rodley resident John Barker, said he was ‘very pleased’ the service will have both an Iman and a Jewish representative to say Kaddish.

Ahead of Remembrance Sunday, the Friends group will be holding its AGM on Wednesday, October 28 at Bramley Community Centre. See the details below – all welcome to attend.

Mr Barker has also taken on another war grave related project – at St Peter’s in Bramley. He said:

“St Peter’s  had virtually all its headstones removed in the 1970s and replaced with huge featureless lawns. I’ve been asked (using old records) to create both a map and virtual memorial, so relatives can locate their relatives graves. We’re at the early/medium stages but some 3,500 records (more than 5,000 people) have been logged and mapped.”
