In many parts of the world, people observe a two-minute silence at 11am every 11 November, to remember those who lost their lives during the First World War as well as in more recent conflicts.

Remembrance Sunday is the second Sunday in November, the Sunday nearest to 11 November

People of all ages will pay their respects to those who have lost their lives in conflicts at Remembrance events accross Flintshire.
