Remembrance Sunday.

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them




Eternal Rest

Grant unto them

O Lord


Let perpetual light

shine upon them.

May they rest in peace.
