Lambeth honours our war dead

Remembrance Day services will take place across the borough on Sunday 13 November.

Every year millions of people across the country take part in Remembrance services or mark the day with a two-minute silence. People of all ages, religions and nationalities are invited to take part in the service to remember those who died during conflicts as well as honouring all those who have served.

Mayor of Lambeth, Councillor Christiana Valcarcel, said: “Remembrance Day is a reminder of the sacrifice given by ordinary men and women for peace and our freedom.

“It will be a privilege for me to join with residents of the borough in honouring those whose heroism we must never forget.”

Acts of Remembrance will take place at:

  • 9am – Lambeth Town Hall, Brixton Hill SW2 (meet outside Brixton Library at 8.50am for procession to Town Hall)
  • 10.30am – Albert Carr Gardens War Memorial on the north side of Streatham Common.
