Harold Hill paid its respects for Remembrance on Sunday, November 10 with a procession from St George Church to the memorial for an outdoor service led by the Reverend Shaun Moore.
The procession was headed by an Army Cadet band and a bagpiper.
Councillor Denis O'Flynn gave an address and Cllr Keith Darvill read a verse from Laurence Binyon's poem "For the Fallen".
A bugler played "The Last Post" before silence was observed.
Wreathes on behalf of the council and Harold Hill organisations were laid on the memorial before all joined-in to sing the National Anthem.
Reverend Moore gave his blessing before leading a procession back to St George's for the memorial service.
