On Remembrance Day Last Wednesday, the 11th November, a number of Deepstore and Compass Minerals employees attended the Cenotaph on Bradford Road, Winsford in order to lay wreaths in memory of the employers from the Winsford works of the Salt Union Ltd who gave their lives in the Great War 1914 to 1918 and in proud remembrance of those who gave their lives in the Second World War 1939 to 1945.

In previous years a Service of Remembrance has been held at the Cenotaph which employees of Deepstore and Compass Minerals have been invited to attend along with the Reverend from Whitegate Church. However, due to the current Government social distancing guidelines in place we limited the number of those attending the Cenotaph to lay the wreaths. 

Employees of DeepStore and Compass Minerals observed a two-minute silence from their own work stations, to pay their respects for those who lost their lives during the war.
