30 July 2019 saw the 75th Anniversary of the Sandringham Road bomb. The cemetery team organised a memorial service to commemorate this event. 

 

It was attended by the Mayor who laid a wreath, survivors of the bomb and local press and radio. The event was well attended with at least 60 people in attendance. 

 

Minsters from local churches took a service at the graveside, there was a wreath laying service by the Mayor and local funeral director. 

 

The Cemetery Manager did a roll call of all the deceased, followed by two minutes silence. The service at graveside was concluded with a dove release. After the service, all attendees were invited to the chapel for refreshments

and had a chance to view the literature, press cuttings and photographs that the cemetery team displayed in the chapel. A moving talk was then given by Oliver Phillips who wrote many articles for the Sandringham Road incident from the Watford Observer.  Although retired he came all the way from France to do this. The event was very successful and brought lots of local residents together to remember this sad occasion.
