Remembrance services are being held across the borough to commemorate those who died in World War One.

On Sunday, councillors, residents and members of the Royal British Legion will join together to reflect on the sacrifices made in conflicts past and present.

A wreath laying will take place in Barking Park at the War Memorial at 10am. This will be followed by a parade through the town centre to St Margaret’s Church ahead of a minute silence at 11am. Refreshments will then be served in Barking Learning Centre’s conference room.

A parade will take place from the social club in Rectory Road to Dagenham Parish Church at 10.30am. A service will begin at the church at 11am.

The Becontree Royal British Legion will hold a service at their Chadwell Heath base at 3pm.

On Friday, the council will hold a service at the Job Drain Memorial Statue, and the Dagenham Royal Naval Association will hold one at Dagenham Village’s War Memorial at 11am. There’ll be a second service on Saturday at 11am, at the war memorial on the corner of the Heathway and Church Elm Lane.
