Remembrance Sunday 2018 at the London Cenotaph

The Image Library

On 11 November 1918, guns fell silent on the Western Front for the first time in four years. At home, this news was greeted with relief and joy, resulting in the spontaneous ringing of church bells which had been silent throughout the four year conflict. More than 700,000 British soldiers died in the First World War and the events of 11 November will remember and give thanks for their sacrifice.

The day will begin with the National Service of Remembrance at the Cenotaph which will remain unchanged and remember those who have died from all conflicts since the First World War. The customary Two Minutes' Silence will be observed from 11.00 am.
