SILHOUETTES are being displayed at Knutsford churches leading up to Remembrance Sunday as a poignant reminder of those who gave their lives for their country.

Knutsford Town Council applied for a grant from The Armed Forces Covenant Trust for the silhouettes, which are on display at St Cross Church, Knutsford Methodist Church, Brook Street Unitarian Chapel and St John’s the Baptist’s Church.

Town clerk Adam Keppel-Green said: “We were pleased to be able to provide these poignant reminders for use by the Knutsford churches in the run-up to Remembrance Sunday as part of our small programme of commemorations.”

The silhouettes are designed to be fitted to a chair to highlight those are no longer here as a reminder of the fallen.

They can be seen at Knutsford Methodist Church at the Cheshire Villages Great War Society exhibition on Saturday, November 3 from 10am to 5pm.

The exhibition will feature photographs and memorabilia of the men who served in the war from Knutsford and the surrounding towns and villages. Admission to the exhibition is free, and there will be light refreshments available.

There is a special service on Sunday, November 4 at St Cross Church for All Souls Day, where people can come to remember their loved ones who have died in the past 12 months.

The service will be A Choral Eucharist (Rutter’s Requiem) with the Lydian Singers at 6.30pm.
