Remembrance Sunday Parade And Service To Take Place In Greenhead Park

This year Huddersfield’s Remembrance Sunday Parade and Service will take place in Greenhead Park, a departure from the usual town centre parade and Parish Church service.

Why is it a special year?

This year November 11th is on Remembrance Sunday so the Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day services have been combined into one at Greenhead Park.  This last happened in 2012 and hundreds turned out at the park to support and participate in the service.  Everyone is invited to come along and mark this significant anniversary as Huddersfield remembers not only those who fell in battle, but their loved ones left behind and those that suffered and are still suffering as a result of conflict.

The Mayor, Councillor Gwen Lowe said

“I hope that everyone will come and support the many Remembrance Services taking place across the borough to remember the many local men and women who have given so much.”

What time is it?

Those wishing to take part in the Huddersfield parade are asked to arrive at the park no later than 10.00 am in order for the parade to set off at 10.25 am.

The Mayor will attend the Batley Remembrance Sunday Service. The Deputy Mayor will attend the one in Huddersfield.

  • Why cannot the MP’s also choose which Remembrance Service to go to so that everyone across Kirklees, and everywhere else can commemorate the fallen at the appointed hour, ie. 11am and not right up to 1.30pm as in Mirfield. ?
    In my view this is a disgusting practice. We must remember them at the appointed hour not when the MP’s find it convenient please.
