Did you know that 4 of our Fighting Men from the First World War are buried here in Albert County?

As we approach the 100th Anniversary of the end of the First World War, and we pause to remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. You may wish to take the time to visit the grave sites of four of our fighting men who are buried here in Albert County. One of the men died from tuberculosis which he contracted while in hospital recovering from wounds. The other three died from the results of the Spanish Flu epidemic of 1918. The Spanish Flu epidemic hit those ages 18-45 and was particularly hard on returning soldiers.

If you plan on purchasing a Poppy Cross for one of the Remembrance Day ceremonies, you can take them home after the ceremony and place them on one of their graves.

You can purchase poppy wreathes at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 32 in Hillsborough phone 734-2289.
