Your comprehensive guide to Anzac Day in the Maranoa

AS PART of their work recognising Roma's returned First World War soldiers, the History Lodge are holding an Anzac ceremony at the Roma Cemetery in Lewis Street.

Those attending are asked to meet at 6.45am at the Cemetery Cenotaph for a 7am start.

David Cooper will be conducting a short ceremony with a few prayers, a hymn, raising the flag, a minute's silence and a full list of all First World War soldiers' names the Lodge have researched will be read out.

Friends or family members are invited to place a wreath on their soldier's grave as the names are said.

The Scouts and Guides will assist in laying wreaths on the graves of all the soldiers without family present.

A map of the cemetery will be available, with rows and graves marked out.
