Remembrance SundayRemembrance Sunday in 2014 is a very special Sunday, taking place in the year of the centenary of the First World War. Each year, on the second Sunday of November, members of the Royal Family join current and former members of the services at the Cenotaph to remember the dead of the UK and Commonwealth. Wreaths are laid at the Cenotaph followed by two minutes' silence at 11am and after a short service there is a march past by thousands who served and suffered in the conflict of war. While thousands of people line the streets leading to Cenotaph, there are usually other events marking Remembrance Sunday including a Ceremony of Remembrance at London's Imperial War Museum, a day of activities at the National Army Museum and a weekend of events at the Royal Air Force Museum.

 

About Cenotaph

Standing solemnly in the middle of Whitehall, visitors could be forgiven for passing the Cenotaph by unnoticed. But every November it becomes the focus of Britain's Remembrance Service (the closest Sunday to 11th November). The service commemorates the British Empire and Commonwealth servicemen who died in the two World Wars. More about Cenotaph
