Northampton Town Council lead the Remembrance Sunday Commemorations on the Centenary of the RBL

Northampton Town Council were proud to lead the Remembrance Sunday (November 14th) commemorations in the town centre this year with a parade, civic procession and service at All Saints Church in Northampton town centre to honour and remember our fallen soldiers.

The parade commenced in the Market Square at 9.30am it was led by local military and the Royal British Legion, who this year celebrated their centenary. They were followed by Northampton's Veterans and Cadets as well as other local community groups.

At 10am, Father Oliver Coss then led The Divine Service at All Saints Church.
Following the service, members of the public were then invited to gather near the memorial garden, where The Last Post was performed and wreaths from local dignitaries and community groups were laid, accompanied by Abington Wind Band.

Finally, the parade then marched past The Guildhall where the Lord Lieutenant, Mr James Saunders Watson Esq and The Mayor of Northampton Town, Councillor Rufia Ashraf, received the salute.

The memorial garden remained open for the public to pay their respects.

For those who were unable to attend this year's Remembrance Sunday commemorations, the service was streamed live from All Saints Church and can be viewed on the Northampton Town Council Facebook page.
