Dudley Remembers The Fallen This November

The Mayor of Dudley is set to pay tribute at Armistice and Remembrance Sunday services in the town.

On Friday November 11 veterans will join council staff, councillors and members of the public at the Clock Tower in Priory Street for the annual Armistice Day to mark the end of the First World War service. The service starts at 11am and includes the laying of wreaths and a two minute silence.

Priory Street will be closed on the morning and alternative routes and signposted throughout the closures from 8am to 1pm. 

On Sunday November 13 a Remembrance Day service will take place at the cenotaph in Ednam Road at 10.40am.

Ex-service men and women, along with community groups, will parade from Vicar Street at approximately 10.30am, and move along High Street, Stone Street, Priory Street, Priory Road and end in Ednam Road by the cenotaph. Uniformed organisations will meet in Vicar Street from 10am.

Several road closures will be in place to make sure the event runs smoothly and safely including Priory Road, Ednam Road, New Street, Tower Street, Priory Street, Stone Street, St James’s Road, Parsons Street, Market Place, High Street, Wolverhampton Street, Union Street and Vicar Street.

People can pay their respects by placing a poppy in the special cross of remembrance at the Clock Tower in Priory Street. The cross is available at all times of the day or night for people to pay their personal tributes to people who have lost their lives. Councillor Mohammed Hanif, Mayor of Dudley, said:

“Both the Armistice and Remembrance events are always extremely popular with our residents and they always help make each one a moving tribute to the sacrifices made by our armed forces heroes.” 

A Festival of Remembrance concert with the popular Gentlemen Songsters Male Voice Choir will take place at Dudley Town Hall on Thursday November 10. Tickets cost £10 and are available from the box office on 01384 812812 or visiting Dudley Council’s website dudley.gov.uk.
