The Aylesbury Vale Crematorium will open its chapel on Remembrance Sunday, November 13, for an hour of silent reflection.

Remembrance Sunday which is the Sunday nearest to Remembrance Day, is the anniversary of the end of hostilities in the First World War, which took place at 11am on November 11 1918.

On Sunday, November 13, the chapel at the crematorium, on Watermead, will be open to everyone between 10.30am and 11.30am, with a two-minute silence being observed at 11am.


Visitors to the crematorium between November 1 and 13 will be able to buy poppies in support of the Royal British Legion.

Site manager Lilly Fortune said: “Remembrance Day is a time when so many people pause to think about all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

“Remembrance is what we do at Westerleigh Group, which makes our peaceful and tranquil site a fitting place for people to come and pay their own respects and make their own personal tributes to honour the bravery of the fallen.

“We wanted to do something for Remembrance Day as part of our continuing efforts to play a positive role in local community life and to engage with the people who live in the area surrounding our beautiful site.”
