Holbeach Cemetery Chapels Trust has received approval from Holbeach Parish Council to site a six foot “Tommy” silhouette in the cemetery to commemorate the centenary of the end of World War 1.

The silhouettes are produced by a charity called Remembered, and you can find out more about them by visiting www.therebutnotthere.org.uk

Staff at Chosen Charity Shop in Holbeach have generously donated the £750 to purchase the Tommy silhouette to be placed by the graves of the World War 1 fallen in Holbeach Cemetery.
