A short video made by the CWGC.

The memory of over 50 fallen soldiers will be once again be honoured on Remembrance Day, following the replacement of six bronze panels, which were stolen last year.

The plaques were taken last November from Philips Park Cemetery in Manchester, but at a special re-dedication ceremony at the weekend, the panels were unveiled in a service led by the Bishop of Middleton, the Rt Rev Mark Davies.

The new plaques are exact copies of those which were taken, and honour soldiers from the Manchester Regiment, Lancashire Fusiliers and Cheshire Regiment, who died in both the First and Second World Wars.
