This year Armistice Day was on Saturday so the Upper Chapel Strollers, led by Graham Haque and Patrick Smith, visited the official World War One memorial in Burngreave Cemetery on one of their regular walks.

At 11 minutes past 11am on the 11th day, they paid their respects with two minutes silence.

They then walked through the cemetery to the Chapel and looked at the various displays featuring soldiers killed in The First World War.

Mr Steve Attwood kindly donated a memorial plaque, (called the Death Penny), that was given to the families of soldiers killed as a result of enemy action in the First World War. The soldier’s name is Rodney Frank Devey from Sheffield.
