Remembrance Sunday Service to take place at War Memorial Park

The yearly remembrance service will be held on Remembrance Sunday (12 November) at the War Memorial Park.

The service will honour and pay respects to those who lost their lives in the two World Wars and other conflicts.

Members of the public are invited to attend the service from 10.50am, which features a parade, hymns, readings and the laying of wreaths. The service will be led by The Right Reverend Dr Christopher Cocksworth, the Lord Bishop of Coventry.

This year, the event will play host to 8 visitors from Kiel, Germany, to honour the 70th anniversary of twinning of the city of Coventry and Kiel.

Also in attendance will be Coventry’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Tony Skipper, who will lay wreaths and take the salute. He said:

“The Remembrance Day Service will always be important, as it helps us remember, honour, and pay our respects to all those who have lost their lives due to wars or armed conflict.”

The service will take place at 10.50am in Coventry’s War Memorial Park on Sunday 12 November. Guests should assemble at the Cenotaph.

Members of the public are also welcome to attend the annual Communal Grave Service at London Road Cemetery at 3pm later the same day to remember the civilians who died during the Blitz in 1940.
