FARNBOROUGH WAR MEMORIAL


The village War memorial is situated in the churchyard of St. Giles Church.

It is the location not only for the annual service of remembrance that takes place in November each year, but also many other special services held from time to time commemorating the heroism and sacrifice  of those who have gone before.

The memorial is maintained jointly by Farnborough Village Society and St. Giles Church.

Remembrance Sunday

Every year there is an Act of Remembrance at the village war memorial situated in Farnborough churchyard.  The photos below are from the service that took place on 11th November 2018, the 100th anniversary of the Armistice of 11 November 1918.

This armistice, which took effect at 11:00 French time, ended fighting on land, sea and air in World War I between the Allies and Germany. Previous armistices had eliminated Bulgaria, the Ottoman Empire and the Austro-Hungarian Empire from the war.  Read More
