World War One Remembrance Service

100 years ago, this day, the guns fell silent…

This is a once in a life time opportunity to commemorate the fallen Pals from Baxenden who joined the Accrington Pals but never made it back.

A bloody world war that ended on November 11th 1918.

There will be a service of commemoration, with silence of reflection being held at the cenotaph.

When: November 11th at 3pm at St John’s Church.

Followed by a family street style party of the 20’s


The Baxenden fallen need you to remember them
