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 for the peace and freedom we enjoy today.

The Ackworth and Pontefract Branch arranges Remembrance and Armistice events in Pontefract Town Centre and Ackworth Village.
