Mayor of London Boris Johnson said "In this, the centenary year of the First World War, it is more important than ever that we honour, we remember and we commemorate all those who made the ultimate sacrifice for the preservation of freedom and democracy in our great country."

Chairman of the London Assembly Roger Evans AM said "While this year's Remembrance commemorations rightly focus on the centenary of the start of the First World War and the appalling carnage that followed, it is our duty to remember not only those who fell in conflicts past but also those who continue to serve and sacrifice today."

The Service will start at 10.30am with 2 minutes silence at 11am.
