Rememberance with a Difference

Posted on November 10th, 2020

Remembrance Day 2020…

Freedom Funeral are proud to be based in Colchester, a town with a great deal of army heritage and  home to 16 Air Assault Brigade.  Our team, as always, will be marking the occasion but 2020 looks a little different.

Remembrance Day is usually marked with parades across the country, paying respects to those who lost their lives in wars.  Whilst outdoor events with crowds of people will not be going ahead this year, this will not stop our nation from remembering their lives.

Due to Lockdown 2.0 there have been some changes to remembrance events with virtual and socially distanced events taking place to commemorate the day. This includes the annual nationwide 2-minute silence, where people are asked this year to take part in the silence from their own doorsteps.

2020 has been a difficult year for so many, but we won’t let that stop us remembering those who so bravely fought for the future we now enjoy.    

“Lest we forget”… we will remember them.
