A ceremony to be held on Sunday 24/07/11 at 1330 hrs at Philips Park Cemetery, Manchester to honour the return of the Pte William Jones V.C. plaque being displayed once again in its rightful place. Along with the return of the Pte Jones plaque, two further plaques, one each for Pte Joshua Lodge and Pte John Lyons will be also be displayed within the cemetery, opposite the war memorial. Following on from the headstone obtained in 2007 for Pte W Jones, a headstone each for Pte Lodge and Pte Lyons will also be place to mark their graves. There is a major route from the main entrance of the cemetery to the War Memorial which takes approx 5 minutes and it is along this route that a parade is planned, followed by a ceremony at the site of the plaques
