Dudley pays tribute to the fallen 2021
Thousands gathered to pay tribute at the Dudley Remembrance Sunday service today.
Event organisers at Dudley Council invited members of the public to join with ex-service men and women, community groups and digitates to pay their respects.
There was a short parade from Stone Street Square with the parade moving past the World War One memorial on Priory Street, down Priory Road and onto Ednam Road before it came to a halt at the cenotaph.
Reverend James Treasure led the Remembrance Sunday service and was joined by the Mayor of Dudley at Coronation Gardens.
Wreaths were laid at the cenotaph or the WWI memorial after the service.
Councillor Anne Millward, the Mayor of Dudley, said:
It has been an incredible privilege and honour to represent Dudley at today’s Remembrance Sunday service, I’m so pleased it could go ahead in a more familiar way this year.
This sombre occasion reminds us all to stop and reflect on the huge sacrifices people have made for our country including the brave men and women serving their country today.
Today we promise to never forget those who have been lost and I would like to thank the Dudley community for once again joining us in paying their respects.
An Armistice service was held in Dudley on Thursday (11 November) at the World War One memorial on Priory Street.
