KEIGHLEY district pays its respects to those killed or injured in conflicts around the world this Remembrance Sunday, (Nov 11) exactly 100 years after the end of the First World War.

The time of 11am on the day will have particular poignancy, as it will mark the centenary of the end to a war which claimed the lives of tens of millions, including around 700,000 British soldiers.

There will be civic representations at 31 services across Bradford District to mark Remembrance Sunday, including: Keighley, Cross Roads/Lees/Bocking, Cullingworth, Denholme, Harden, Haworth, Oakworth, Oxenhope, Silsden, Steeton and Wilsden.

Lord Mayor of Bradford, Keighley Councillor Zafar Ali, will attend the service at the cenotaph in Bradford city centre before taking the salute in City Park.

He will also be attending the service in Ilkley in the afternoon. Deputy Lord Mayor, Cllr Martin Smith, will be at the service in Keighley.

Cllr Ali said: “I’m proud to be representing Bradford for this year’s remembrance, 100 years on from the end of the First World War.

“Remembrance Day is particularly important to the people of Bradford district, and in this centenary year local people will be particularly keen to take part in services to remember those who have lost their lives in conflict.

“It is also vital that those who are currently serving in the armed forces remain in our thoughts.”
