It was conducted in both Spanish and English, by a Catholic Priest Jose Francisco, and an Anglican Priest, the Reverend Terry Baxter. In attendance were Lieutenant Salvador of the Guardia Civil; Chief Martin of the Policia Local, and six councillors from both the ruling team,and the opposition. These included the councillor for European residents, Paulino Herrero. They were accompanied by more than 100 local residents of both nationalities. The Last Post and Reveille were played by former Royal Marine, John Atkins. Following the service, wreathes were laid at the temporary altar, and were later transferred to the altar inside the church.
