Placing of Poppy Crosses

If you happen to pass through Brandwood End Cemetery this week,  you may well see members of the Friends and volunteers placing some 350 + poppy crosses. Each War Grave in Brandwood End is marked  every year by the placing of a poppy cross on it. A large grid ‘poppy cross cemetery’ is also formed on the grassland adjacent to the Cross of Sacrifice on the Main Drive- to give an impression of the large numbers of those buried within Brandwood End who have lost their lives in wars around the globe.

PoppyPlease pause for a moment after Remembrance Sunday to read the information placed near the ‘poppy cemetery’.
