THOUSANDS of people gathered to pay tribute to the fallen soldiers in Worcestershire to mark Remembrance Sunday.

Services across the county remembered not only those who died during the First and Second World Wars, but also those who continued to suffer in the aftermath of war.

Worcester Cathedral held a Remembrance service at 10am which followed by an act of remembrance at the county war memorial.

In his welcoming speech, the Very Rev Dr Peter Atkinson, dean of Worcester, said we should remember “the injured, the bereaved, the emotionally scarred, those who lost homes and livelihoods and those who were unable to rebuild their lives.”


Remembrance weekend: Who are you grateful for and why?

Hundreds gathered outside the cathedral to pay their respects while wreaths were laid at the war memorial. Folk joined Armed Forces personnel who attended the service. A gun was fired and the cathedral bell rang at 11am to announce the two minutes’ silence.

Today (Monday, November 11) there will be another act of remembrance at Worcester’s county war memorial at 10.55am for Armistice Day.

There will also be a short service on today at the war memorial within Great Malvern Priory at 10.55am.

The day commemorated the contribution of British and Commonwealth military and civilian servicemen and women involved in the two World Wars.
