Remembrance in Fulford

by admin on 16 October, 2018

As part of the City’s period of remembrance before armistice, 62 names from the Kings Book of York Heroes – of those who died in York – were read out in Fulford today. This event took place outside St. Oswald’s Church, read by local councillor Cllr Keith Aspden, the Rev Terence McDonough and Verna Campbell, the Sheriff of York.

Afterwards, Cllr Keith Orrell, the Lord Mayor and the Lady Mayoress of York, who were in attendance, visited the First World War display at St. Oswald’s Church. The display by the church includes six There But Not There transparent seated military figures, installed where the men and women came from across the country, back in the communities they left behind. The transparent silhouettes at the church are representative figures for every name on local war memorials.
