Dennis Noble’s Ceremony

by | 20 October 2020 | Heritage, Retford

Despite the cancellation of the planned ceremony to honour Retford serviceman Dennis Noble, organisers Elizabeth and Michael Szarelis laid a wreath on his grave in Retford cemetery on Sunday 30th August at 11.00am.
A very small group of people turned up to pay their respects and all health and safety guidance at the time was followed. They had family members of Dennis Noble from Gainsborough attend and lay some flowers. This personal connection was very moving. They had never visited his grave or the cemetery before and got in contact following an appeal by Elizabeth and Michael on social media.
