HUNDREDS of residents gathered in Barnsley town centre on Sunday to pay their respects to those who made the ‘ultimate sacrifice’.

In a service held outside the town hall, representatives of the armed forces community were invited to lay wreaths alongside the Mayor of Barnsley Sarah Tattersall.

Almost 100 Barnsley Singers - an adult choir - were present at the service.

A spokesperson for the group said: “They sang with quality and sincerity alongside Barnsley Met Band and their conductor, Alex Francis.

“They sounded fantastic as ever.

“Well done to all who sang, you were a credit to our town and community.

“We will remember them.”
