Remembrance

Welcome to the Rickmansworth & West Hyde Branch of The Royal British Legion

The Royal British Legion is recognised as the national custodian of Remembrance.

Remembrance Sunday, the second Sunday in November, is the day traditionally put aside to remember all those who have given their lives - or been injured, or served - in the service of our country - for the peace and freedom we enjoy today.

View our News & Events calendar for details of local Remembrance events - and please contact me if you would like to join our entertainments committee!

If you were to search the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website for military graves in the Rickmansworth area, there are 44 in the Chorleywood Road Cemetery. For ease of reference - or maybe just to get you started - here they are (with hyperlinks to their details on www.cwg.org) - and here's a 'Where are you' plan;
