Hundreds of people across Amersham made their way to the town’s memorial garden and paid their respects on Remembrance Sunday.

In attendance were members from the town, county, parish and district council where they laid wreaths and observed the two minutes silence.

Town Clerk, Lizzie Richardson told the Bucks Free Press: “The whole event went very well, and it was well respected by everyone who attended.

“The Memorial Garden was packed out and it was the most people we've had attended the service for a few years so it was great to see so many people who paid their respects to those who died.

“It was incredibly moving and it was the 14th year in a row that we have had our Remembrance Service on the Sunday where it hasn’t rained, so we’ve been very fortunate with that."

Between 1914 to 1918, around 860,000 to 1,011,000 British people lost their lives in World War One, where people died from military injuries, combat injuries, malnutrition, severe causes of flu or being missing in action.

Not long after the conclusion of the Great War, poppies were planted in the battlefields where servicemen had fought and lost their lives during the four-year conflict.

The poppy has been worn by the British people to remember those who fought for our freedom since 1921, with the flower being trademarked by the Royal British Legion

And on the day, members of the public, fire station, police force, army, cadets, RAF, Brownies and Scouts to name just a few, also paid their respects as they remembered those who died in both world wars and other conflicts.

The Amersham Band were also at the service, where they played the Last Post and other emotional pieces of music.

Ms Richardson added: “It was a very emotional service and we’re very grateful to those who attended.

Amersham was just one of many towns across Buckinghamshire who remembered those on Remembrance Sunday, with locations such as Marlow, Beaconsfield, Aylesbury, Chesham and Wycombe all holding Remembrance Services.
