A service to mark the 70th anniversary of the Baedeker raids will be held at Earlham Cemetery on Saturday 28 April at 11am.
Organised by Norwich City Council the service will be attended by the Lord Mayor of Norwich Councillor Jenny Lay and Sheriff, Chris Higgins.
More than 100 people killed in the Baedeker raids are buried in a special garden of remembrance in Earlham Cemetery, which lists their names. The Lord Mayor said; “The Baedeker raids bring to mind vivid and painful memories for many people in Norwich, when several parts of the city centre were reduced to rubble.”
The service will be conducted by the Rev Canon Peter Nokes vicar of St Peter Mancroft Church, with music from members of the Norwich Citadel Band. Canon Nokes said; “Everyone is welcome to attend and it will be an opportunity for people to remember those who lost their lives in a devastating episode of the city’s history.”
If you would like to attend, please enter via the Farrow Road west side entrance, and the garden of remembrance is directly in front of you.
Please note there is limited parking and no special seating.
