Residents at Marlow’s Cliveden Manor Care Home paid their respects to fallen soldiers on Remembrance Sunday.

The residents also took part in their own service at the care home, which saw many people read poems, quote parts of The Bible, listen to ‘The Last Post’, sing hymns, and take part in a two-minute silence.

Poems that were read on the day were ‘Remember Me’ by Christina Rossetti, ‘Who We Remain’ by Anthony Devonny, ‘In Flanders Fields’ by John McCray, ‘Remembrance’ by Helen Gardener, and ‘Anthem of Doomed Youth’ by Wilfred Owen, with all the pieces of work being read out by residents at the home.

Sarah Loveday, the senior client liaison manager at the care home, said: “Remembrance Day is a very important and poignant date in our residents’ calendar.

“We watched the BBC service during the morning and in the afternoon, held our own Remembrance Reflection Service, which we’d practised during the week.

“We would usually have joined the Royal British Legion Service on the Causeway in Marlow, but of course times are very different at the moment with Covid and there are no such gatherings.”

Remembrance Sunday and Remembrance Day is to remember soldiers who have died in the line of duty, with the inaugural day of memorial taking place in 1919 – one year after the First World War ended.

A two-minute silence is observed at 11am on the 11th day on the 11th month, as it was at 11am on November 11, 1918, that the First World War ended.
