As part of our case study entitled ‘Heroes and Loved Ones’, we undertook a brief survey of participants in the Parade and Remembrance Service in Beverley Minster on 8 November 2015. This survey also included the people who congregated in the town.
The survey was undertaken to ascertain their reasons for
participating, and the meanings which they attached to the service and surrounding ceremonies.
There was an opportunity for individuals or small groups to make their own personal memorial through photographic portraits which was facilitated by the teams creative artist Liz Nicol. Over the ensuing weeks we will invite a cross-section of participants to take part in a face-to-face interview to explore these themes in greater depth.
