Town Hall Talk

5th August

Around 1200 Burnley people taking part in the torch lit procession through Towneley Park on the evening of 4 August will live long in the memory of everybody who was there.

The event was a major act of respectful tribute for all those who lost their lives in the First World War – and especially for all the young men and boys from our borough who went to fight in Belgium and France and died there.

Over 4000 Burnley people were killed in the four years of conflict: it had a massive impact on our borough.

Everybody at Towneley Park was keeping a promise.

A promise made at the time of the 1914 – 1918 war: ‘we will remember them’.

During the ceremony of remembrance at the Cenotaph, young people from the Air Training Corps read the names of just a few of those who lost their lives, with their respective ages.

This moment brought home the horror and human cost of the war.

At a key point in the ceremony, a bugler played ‘The Last Post’ and the lights were dimmed for the two minutes’ silence.

The stillness of the night added to the poignant atmosphere.
