CENOTAPHS across Bury will be much quieter places this Remembrance Sunday.

But the second national lockdown has not dimmed the borough's determination to remember the fallen.

Mayor of Bury, Cllr Tim Pickstone, has urged people to commemorate those who made the supreme sacrifice, from The Great War and Second World War to the Falklands through to the Gulf, at home.

He acknowledge in a video message how tough it has been to mark events such as VE Day at 75, and now Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, from afar.

Cllr Pickstone added though: "We will find an opportunity to be together again but in the meantime we will remember them."

Supporters of Prestwich Remembers have produced a poigant near-five minute video of the town's socially-distanced memorial service, filmed earlier this week.

The Mayor, Bury South MP Christian Wakeford, veterans groups, councillors and political groups, clubs, Scouts, police, firefighters and organises, as well as PADOS, the near neighbours of the Rectory Lane cenotaph, were filmed laying wreaths.

Elsewhere the tributes at the borough's five other town memorials ranged from the civic to the personal.

Tiny crosses remembering the fallen from conflicts including the Somme, Ypres and Passchendaele, to Aden, Burma, Korea and beyond.

One standout cross at Bury pays tribute to Capt Zachary Speakman, from Prestwich, the Fusililer who died in an avalanche in the French Alps in 2005.

Several of the memorials also feature specially-decorated rocks, with poppy and similar designs, left by young and old alike.

Bury North MP James Daly, The Royal British Legion, Rotary, Lions, Scouts, Guides, Cubs, U3A, Age UK, the Fusililers Association, the Jewish Military Association, Bolton Nurses League, Radcliffe Male Voice Choir, Radcliffe Brass Band, Radcliffe and District Pool League, Besses Boys Band, Veterans Sweetheart Sarah Dennis, The Rock, Greater Manchester Lieutenancy and Bury and District Agricutual Society are all represented at various locations.

And the 1030 and 1006 air cadet squadrons and army cadets, alongside Ramsbottom United Juniors, represent youth.
