The Friends of Flaybrick Memorial Gardens in Birkenhead are holding their first ever Remembrance Day Service and Exhibition at the Chapels this year on Sunday 11th November.
A portland stone tablet has been ordered with local Monumental Masons E.F. Mackie, to commemorate 100 years since the end of WW1 as well as the fallen in Flaybrick. This is to be sited in front of the Cross of Sacrifice and will be unveiled on the day.
We are also creating a timeline exhibition of information and photographs inside the Chapels, of the fallen laid to rest in Flaybrick, of which there are over 300.
We are currently fundraising to raise enough money to pay for the commemorative stone, as well as the materials to create the exhibition and displays etc. We are also having Order of Service booklets printed for the day.
If you would like to make a donation towards this event please visit our Go Fund Me page, www.gofundme.com/ww1-commemoration-at-flaybrick-2018. Just donating a small amount will go a very long way to helping us achieve our goal and the Friends would like to thank everyone in advance for their donations and support.
This event is extremely important to the Friends group and those who have relatives resting in Flaybrick. We’re inviting people to come for the Service on the day and to join us in paying our respects to those who should and always will be remembered.
We will post more information and photographs as we lead up to the event.
