Remembrance services and parades

Sandwell Remembers

On Sunday 12 November 2023, people from all faiths, cultures and backgrounds once again united at remembrance events across Sandwell to honour those who died in service for our country.

There were seven parades in total across Sandwell’s six towns, organised by the Royal British Legion and community groups, with support from Sandwell Council.

Parades were followed by services, with the two-minute silence by war memorials at 11am.

The parades and services were at the following locations:

  • Great Barr – St Margaret’s Church
  • Oldbury – Oldbury Civic Square
  • Rowley Regis – Powke Lane Cemetery
  • Smethwick – Smethwick Council House
  • Tipton – Victoria Park
  • Wednesbury – Memorial Gardens
  • West Bromwich – Dartmouth Park

Other Remembrance services

Every year we hold a variety of different Remembrance Services at both our crematoria. Services are also organised at our cemeteries by the Royal British Legion.
