Commemoration Ceremonies

In Liverpool, Plymouth and Folkestone lie the remains of nineteen Chinese labourers who had succumbed to illness or disease en route to France. It is highly unlikely that their descendants know of the existence of their graves or even that they died in England. Local council leaders, residents and members of the armed forces joined us in paying tribute to these men.

Drama Sequences

Actors re-enact the emotions and experiences of the labourers and their families. These dramatic sequences, based on true accounts, were used in workshops at schools and community groups to engage young participants in the story of the CLC.
