The Beaconsfield Anzac Memorial Service was first held in 1999. Since then a Memorial Service has been held each year on the Sunday before Anzac Day. Last year 2020, we had to cancel the service for the first time due to the Covid pandemic and the Covid restrictions in place at the time. However we were able to fly our flags at the Cenotaph and lay wreaths to mark the occasion.
This year 2021, we would like to have a service of some kind, but it would most likely be smaller than the usual service. At this stage we are awaiting advice from the Government and Cardinia Shire Council.
As further information becomes available this page will be updated.
Beaconsfield has a history of dedicated war service. There are several memorials in the town remembering the soldiers and they are all documented on this website:
- The Beaconsfield Avenue of Honour
- The Honour Board
- The Cenotaph
- The Digital Memorial
- Beaconsfield Park
