Lord Mayor to lead Annual Service of Remembrance at Chester Cathedral
1 November 2019This year’s Annual Service of Remembrance at Chester Cathedral takes place on Sunday, 10 November, led by Lord Mayor Councillor Mark Williams.
He will be joined by other civic dignitaries and serving members of the Army, RAF and Navy and ex-members of the Armed Forces.
The service begins at 10am.
This will be followed by the Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial, in the Garden of Remembrance outside the Cathedral, at 10.55am when wreaths will be laid.
A Military parade gets underway at 11.15am in St Werburgh Street before marching through the city centre streets and finishing in Northgate Street where the salute will be given outside the Town Hall.
Cllr Williams said: “Given the present day demands on our Armed Forces, it is clear that Remembrance Sunday remains as important as ever.
“I would encourage people to attend the Cathedral service or one of the ceremonies locally to them, to pay their respects to service men and women, past and present.”
He added: “I will also be commemorating Armistice Day on Monday 11 November 2019 at 11am in the Garden of Remembrance at Chester Cathedral and I would also welcome people to attend this service.”
