What’s happening in Prescot this Remembrance weekend?

To honour this year’s Remembrance Sunday and commemorate 100 years since the end of World War One, the Friends of Prescot Cemetery & Churchyard have once again installed their ‘field of poppies’ around the BI Memorial in the cemetery.

The cemetery group have bought a new iron bench in memory of the PALs, the soldiers stationed at Prescot Barracks during the Great War, and ‘Tommy’ silhouettes also stand in the churchyard to remember the fallen.
