0

Bangor Cathedral’s display of 20,000 knitted poppies commemorating the centenary of the end of World War One will close on November 11th, Remembrance Sunday, in a special way.

Taking place at a date on or around Armistice day, a group of young people from Bangor, the same age as those who died during the First World War, 1914-1918, will read the biographies of those who gave their lives and are commemorated (many accompanied by a photograph) in Cofeb Y Dewrion (Heroes’ Memorial) compiled by the Reverend W. J. Owen (Afallon) soon after the war ended.

Bangor Cathedral are currently appealing to relatives of those fallen to view the names that are compiled in the book and contact them if they would like a biography of a family member to be read out to all that attend this unique event.
