The Farming Community Network is hosting a national remembrance service on 7 November 2021 at Ripon Cathedral, North Yorkshire. The service will pay tribute to those who have died because of farm accidents, Covid-19, and those who have died by suicide. It will recognise the experience of loss felt by all those who have been bereaved.
The ecumenical Remembrance and Thanksgiving service is a free ticketed event and will take place on 7 November 2021 at 15:30pm at Ripon Cathedral in North Yorkshire.
This is a national service available to all in the UK and will be livestreamed, so that people can join from home and light a candle in memory of a loved one.
The service will align with the FCN Harvest Service, which is held annually, and will carry a message of hope and unity. FCN is inviting those in the agricultural community who have been bereaved to put forward their names so that their loved one will be remembered.
For those unable to attend, those bereaved are also being encouraged to send the names of who they want to remember for inclusion in a ‘roll-call’ as part of the service.

Please fill out the form below with expressions of interest in attending or to provide details of a loved one you would like to recognise as part of the service. Please note that due to Covid-19 and Government restrictions at the time, FCN may need to limit the numbers of those who can attend. This will be determined in October and communicated.
