Bradford Armistice100 1918-2018

Undercliffe Needs You! to help commemorate the 275 WW1 casualties remembered at Undercliffe. We are looking for schools and college students to help create, design and take part in our activities on Thursday 8th, Friday 9th and Saturday 10th of November.

The cemetery is a fabulous educational resource and the 100th anniversay of the Armistice is a very important date.

We are seeking pupils to engage with us and be part of the event .

We need 275 pupils  to name and plant a cross in memory of a named WW1 soldier . The crosses will form a small Field of Rememberance

to the fallen Bradfordians. This will be part of the civic service on Friday 9th November, which will be attended by  The Deputy Lord Ltn of Yorkshire and The Lord Mayor of Bradford.

We are also seeking art work, poems, stories inspired by the end of The Great War and how it related to Bradford. 

In partnership with the CWWC  there is an opportunity for discussions and talks about the impact and contribution from the Muslim and Sikh communities across the globe, who  paid the same high price for their service.

Its a brilliant chance to study and explore the conflict with a direct link to Bradford and  its impact on ordinary people.

We are also planning a WW1  Armistice Tea  need, amongst other things, miles of bunting! 

There are many different parts of the curriculum that are 

We have a wealth of study aids  including films and documentaries. The Lodge itself can be used as a classroom, which has disabled access and toilet facilities.

The site itself is 26 acres and again there is good wheelchair access to the majority of the site.

We do have Risk Assesments regarding the monuments and the surrounding site.
