Memorial Day Service and Cenotaph March

The Crypt School have until recently been the only school in the country invited to march at the Cenotaph Day parade.  This honour was granted during Michael Holmes’ headship and lasted until 2020 when the Royal British Legion made significant changes to the administration of the Parade.

The administration of the parade now calls for more planning and effort – the OCC and the School are very keen in continuing the tradition of marching at the Cenotaph in Remembrance of the fallen from all conflicts.


The Covid Pandemic of 2020 meant that there was no march in November 2020 and we have failed to get a working group together to plan for 2021 and ensure an ongoing representation.

Please contact the President if you would like to be involved.  The Royal British Legion requires a minimum of 6 current or former service personnel to be named on each application.
