Service or Remembrance held at Gloucester Cathedral

A service of Remembrance is being held this afternoon at Gloucester Cathedral. Attending the service are Civic Dignitaries, including the High Sheriff and Vice Lord-Lieutenant, members of the Royal British Legion, Royal Naval Association, Gloucester Sea Cadets, serving and ex-members of the Armed Forces.

A parade will form outside the Cathedral at 4:30pm before being led by the Standard Bearers on a march through the streets of Gloucester.

Wreaths were laid at the memorial on the lower Green earlier this afternoon.

Across the Diocese, we will be standing together to remember those brave men and women who have given their lives for the freedom of others.

The sacrifice that our soldiers have made – and continue to make – around the world should never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those families who have loved ones serving far from their homes.

– The Bishop of Tewkesbury, the Rt Revd Martyn Snow
