Bangor Cathedral’s display of 20,000 knitted poppies commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War, will close on Remembrance Sunday, 11th November, in a unique way.

At a date on or around Armistice day, a group of young people from Bangor, of the same age as those who died in the First World War, 1914-1918, will read out the biographies of the city’s heroes who gave their lives in the conflict and who are commemorated (most accompanied by a photograph), in Cofeb Y Dewrion (Heroes’ Memorial) compiled by the Reverend W.J.Owen (Afallon) soon after the war.

Bangor Cathedral are now appealing to relatives of the fallen to view the names compiled in the book, the full list is available on Bangor Cathdreal’s Facebook Page, and to contact them if they would like a biography of a family member read out to all present at this unique event.
