Cromwell Day 2016

Each year, usually on 3rd September, the Cromwell Association holds a service of commemoration for Cromwell on the anniversary of his death in 1658. By kind permission of the Speaker of the House the service is held, whenever possible, by the statue of Cromwell overlooking Parliament Square. The service is only open to members of the Association though others are welcome to observe, and join in if so moved, from the pavement overlooking the statue.

The service took place on 3rd September but due to building works at the Palace of Westminster was held instead in the side chapel of Methodist Central Hall by kind permission of the Revd. Dr Martyn Atkins. The address was given by Jonathan Djanogly MP for Huntingdon. The address will be published in the 2017 edition of the Associationís journal, Cromwelliana.

Before the service President of the Association, Professor Peter Gaunt, and Jonathan Djanogly, laid a wreath on the statue of Cromwell outside Westminster Hall.
