In person Remembrance Sunday service to return
Published: 12 November 2021
On Sunday 14 November, the City’s Annual Remembrance Sunday Service and Parade will take place on Corporation Street from 10.50am.
The Service will be led by The Very Revd, Dr Peter Robinson, Dean of Derby, during which a two-minute silence will be observed at 11.00am, after which wreaths will be laid at the War Memorial. The service will be supported by Derby Central Salvation Army Band and Derby Cathedral Choir.
Everyone is welcome to come and pay their respects to servicemen and women who lost their lives during the two World Wars and subsequent conflicts.
Councillor Robin Wood, Mayor of the City of Derby, said:
Last year we had no option but to cancel the parade and service to protect our community from the COVID pandemic.
I am pleased that this year’s event is able to go ahead and I am sure that many people will want to join us from all parts of our community.
This is our way of recognising the tremendous debt we owe to the men and women who sacrificed their lives in the defence of their country. We must always remember them.
I would also ask people to give generously to this year’s Poppy Appeal to help the Royal British Legion carry out the fantastic work it does to support members of the Armed Forces community.
The Order of Service is Remembrance Order of Service 2021 Please note there will be no paper copies circulated.
Members of the public who are unable to attend in person will be able to watch the service and wreath laying live on the Derby Live Vimeo.
