The church was full for the service, conducted by the Rev Josh Bailey, the Emmanuel Church minister, the Rev Bruno Boldrini, and the Roman Catholic priest, Father Michael.

Mr Boldrini preached the sermon at the service, which included the reading of the names of 154 Bungay men who died in the two world wars.
