Following the success of Harold Wood’s first Remembrance Day service last year residents gathered again at the war memorial to pay their respects.
Around 200 people attended the Remembrance Day service in Arundel Road on Sunday, November 10.
Members of the Upminster and Hornchurch Sea Cadets, St John Ambulance and the Romford parachute regiment joined the parade which began in Station Road and ended at the memorial outside Harold Wood Library.
Rob Hudson, Vicar of St Peter's Church in Gubbins Lane led the service.
Councillor Brian Eagling told the Recorder: "It was phenomenal.

"We got the local shops involved so that even though it's a small area, 29 wreaths were laid at the war memorial.
"Thank you to all of our local businesses. We were delighted with your support."
