Remembrance Day

Today I witnessed the first dedication of a new Book of Remembrance in the ceremony at Riversley Park.  The museum has worked with two volunteers to create the books which bring together the names of those who have died in combat from the borough since 1919. 

Two copies of the book exist and the other was part of the ceremony at Bedworth this morning.  Work will continue to ensure new names are added as they are discovered so that eventually the book will be a complete record.

If you know of a relative from the borough who died in combat either between the first World War and WW2 or after WW2 please contact Matthew Johnson with the details.
