Hundreds of people lined the streets in New Mill and Marsden for Remembrance Sunday.

Community groups, military personnel and churches came together in the villages to hold marches and special services in memory of their lives and hold a two minute silence.

Residents in New Mill packed out the parish church to hear an address by Canon Sean Robertshaw who spoke about the horror and human sacrifice of the conflict that affected so many lives and read out the names of all those who had fallen in conflicts who were from the area.

This was followed by readings from the Army and Air Force Cadets and music by organist Dr G Lockwood, while wreaths were laid by Holmfirth army and air force cadets, local cubs, junior schools and Holmfirth High School.
