Remembrance Day Service

This year's Remembrance Service on Plymouth Hoe will be taking place on Sunday 10 November.


Remembrance Sunday

 

The city’s remembrance service will take place on Plymouth Hoe on Sunday 10 November 2019, starting with a two-minute silence at the Royal Naval Memorial, honouring both service and civilian personnel who have lost their lives in conflicts.

The Lord Mayor and Lady Mayoress Councillor Richard Ball and Mrs Dianne Ball will be joined by the Deputy Lord Mayor and consort, as well as City Councillors in remembering all those who lost their lives in both World Wars and in all conflicts.

Wreaths will be laid by the Lord Mayor, on behalf of the people of Plymouth, as well as armed forces and Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Children from support groups of service family children from across the city, and pupils from local primary schools will also lay their wreaths.

A short service will then be held.

Members of the public and local organisations will be invited to pay their respects and lay their personal wreaths at the end of the service.

The processional party will then take their places at the Civilian Memorial, where a prayer will be given, followed by poem reading.  Wreaths will be laid around the civilian memorial by the Lord Mayor, a representative on behalf of the Services, and a representative on behalf of all the local Members of Parliament, followed by civilian representatives.

Members of the public are reminded that parking around the Hoe is limited. Some spaces will be available on the Hoe Promenade for blue badge holders but this will be on a first come, first served basis.
