Residents asked to Remember at home this year

The borough’s first citizen is set to pay tribute at a virtual Remembrance service which will be broadcast on radio and online for residents to follow from their homes on 8th November.

Due to current social distancing guidelines Dudley Council is encouraging borough residents to remember at home this year and mark the commemoration with a two-minute silence on their doorstep at 11am. 

Residents can follow the service, including the two-minute silence, online via the Dudley borough Facebook page from 10.45am, or by listening to the service on Black Country Radio on 102.5 FM, or online at Councillor David Stanley, Mayor of Dudley, said:

"Remembrance Sunday gives residents of the borough the opportunity to give thanks and pay tribute to all those who serve, or have served in the armed forces, and pay their respects to all who have made the supreme sacrifice for their country.

"Sadly, we cannot come together as one this year but that doesn’t mean that we can’t remember in our own way. The act of remembrance is a very personal thing and there are many ways to remember those who we are thankful for and those we have lost.

As well as participating in the two-minute silence from your doorstep, The Royal British Legion have suggested other ways to remember this year which can be found at

The Memorial to the Fallen at the Clock Tower in Priory Street, Dudley is open Monday to Friday for people to pay their respects. A giant cross has also been put in Dudley Market Place, where people can place poppies and leave personal tributes to those who have lost their lives.
