Pilling Jubilee Silver Band provided the music for those taking part in the parade which marched along the town's High Street to St Thomas's church.
Mayor Coun Alec Allan said: "We were very honoured to have the Right Reverend Bishop Julian of Blackburn leading our Church Service of Remembrance and a time for reflection."
After the service the procession continued along Park Hill Road to the war memorial where the Bishop led the formal Act of Remembrance as wreaths were placed to remember those who perished in two world wars and Afghanistan. A plaque honouring Lance Corporal Jonathan James McKinlay who died in Afghanistan in 2011 had been fixed to the war memorial recently.
