A Remembrance Sunday ceremony will take place in Sheffield at the Cenotaph in Barker’s Pool on November 13.

The Lord Mayor of Sheffield will be joined by the Lord Lieutenant and Master Cutler, plus veterans, service personnel and cadets.

At the ceremony, they will take part in a prayer, a silence and lay wreaths on the Cenotaph at 10:30am.

Lord Mayor of Sheffield, Councillor Sioned-Mair Richards, said: “I’m wearing my poppy to demonstrate my own gratitude and the gratitude of this city to our Armed Forces personnel, veterans and the families of those who have lost loved ones in service.

“I’m proud to be leading the Remembrance Sunday service in Sheffield and invite the city to join me at the Cenotaph, as we come together in honour of all those who have fought bravely, given themselves fearlessly and sacrificed their own lives for the freedom of ours.”

Two minutes of silence will be observed at 11am followed by wreath laying, prayers, a series of hymns, and the national anthem.

Lord Mayor Richards continued: “On Remembrance Sunday, and indeed, every day we will reflect together, ‘lest we forget’.”

A parade will then take place from the Cenotaph towards Leopold Street which will end at 12pm.

The people of Sheffield are encouraged to go along to show their respects.
