The names of the 453 men from Hitchin who lost their lives in World War 1 will be read out in a non-denominational service at St Mary's Church on Sunday afternoon.
One hundred years ago, war clouds were looming and no-one knew the devastation that would be wrought across Europe.
Like many towns, we have a strong tradition of respect for those who gave their lives in conflict and this service will include British Schools Museum reading the names of their former students among that number.
