BEDWORTH ARMISTICE

HONOURING THE FALLEN SINCE 1921

The Bedworth Armistice Day Parade and Service

11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month

Bedworth in Warwickshire retains the tradition of celebrating Armistice Day at the exact hour, day and month each year. It is now the largest and most famous Armistice Day Parade in Britain. The service is held at the War Memorial in Bedworth’s Coventry Road Cemetery in the presence of the Lord Lieutenant of Warwickshire representing H.M.The Queen, the Mayor of Nuneaton and Bedworth, invited dignitaries and guests, the citizens of Bedworth and the surrounding towns, and supporters from all over the country who travel just to “be there” on the day.
The parade marches through Bedworth town centre before forming up in the Cemetery for the Armistice service; after which the parade marches along the Rye Piece Ringway where the salute is taken, wheeling left at the Pin Island to re-enter the pedestrian zone and dismisses at The Alms Houses.

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the death of Lynne Perry, beloved wife of the late Alf Perry.  Lynne and Alf were stalwarts of the Armistice for many years, raising thousands of pounds to keep the Armistice Parade going.  Both Alf and Lynne had a great love for Bedworth, for the people and for the Armistice Parade.  Thank you Lynne for everything you did for us.  R.I.P.
