Remembrance Day

Every year on the second Sunday in November our nation remembers its war dead. As a country, we have done this since the end of the First World War in 1918.

Oakworth joins in with this at our own war memorial in Holden Park beginning at 10:45 am, when the Village Society leads a Ceremony of Remembrance of the human cost, for forty two Oakworth men who made the ultimate sacrifice in the Great War and eleven men who died in World War Two.

The Great War memorial was unveiled in 1937, eighteen years after the war had ended. There are many names missing from the memorial and we have researched them and added to our own list of men who died during the Great War. See our Oakworth War Memorial page.

We would warmly welcome anyone who wishes to attend and help us to remember them.
