Memorial Services

On Remembrance Sunday each year, there is a a ceremony where wreaths are laid at the military memorial to remember the Service personnel killed during past wars.

The Project thought there should be a similar event to remember the civilians killed, and to avoid any clashes, chose to do this each year on the nearest Sunday to the anniversary of the Bath Blitz.

On the first occasion, the newly installed Memorial was unveiled by the Mayor of Bath. Since then, each year, a simple wreath has been placed at the Memorial by a descendant of somebody killed in the Bath blitz.

The value of this annual event was recognised in April 2007, when the Chairman of Bath & North East Somerset Council awarded the Project a Chairman's Community Award.

 

From 2004 to 2015 the prayers at each ceremony were taken by Edgar Evans.

Edgar died on Boxing Day 2016 and some of the Project attended his funeral service on 16th January 2017.

Rest In Peace, Edgar
