40 Opening of The Garden of Remembrance at St Paul's Cathedral
Monday 3rd November 2014
The Royal British Legion arranges an annual service in the North Churchyard of St Paul's Cathedral, opening the Garden of Remembrance, in a simple service, led by the Dean of St Paul's. The band of the Grenadier Guards accompanied the hymns and the National Anthem and played much loved music, including Elgar's Nimrod, whilst Poppy Crosses were laid by the Lord Mayor, the Sheriffs, other dignatories and the Masters of the City Livery Companies. It was a poignant occasion, especially in this 100th anniversary of the start of the Great War.
