Several of our volunteers attended the Ramsey War Memorial on Remembrance Sunday to pay our respects and to remember all those Servicemen who have fallen. I laid a wreath on behalf of the ‘Friends of Ramsey Mortuary Chapels’.
It is always well attended, but I think that this year there were more people than ever paying their respects, and rightly so. We live in strange, unsettled times.
We also were pleased and privileged to assist with the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal at Tesco’s in Ramsey.
It never fails to amaze me just how generous people are, and I know that this is very much appreciated, and the money raised will be put to good use.

On the lead up to Remembrance Sunday, we are sharing some information with you about some of the Servicemen who are commemorated in the Wood Lane Cemetery.
Although not all those that we mention are buried there, their families have remembered them by including them on family gravestones.
We would welcome any further information that you might have about them or their families and will include it in our archives. Chapel member Maurice Margetts has been very busy restoring and cleaning the war graves that are not under the care of the War Graves Commission and we would like to thank him for his hard work.
These young men gave their lives so that future generations might be free, and it is important that we remember them. Jane Yardley – Chair of the Friends.
