The last great centenary act of remembrance is being held for when the nation held commemorative services culminating on Remembrance Sunday, writes Rosie Clarkson…

On Wednesday, November 6, 2019, at Southwark Cathedral, a memorial will be held in honour of the railway workers who died for their country during World War I, and to commemorate the overall contribution of the rail industry to the “Great War”.

The doors open at 2pm and it finishes at 4pm.

“In a fractured society, it is important to show the railway industry can be an instrument of love, peace and reconciliation,” said Rev’d Johnston, of the Railway Mission.

“The service is not just looking back at the past, but to the future and the part the railway will play in building links and partnerships beyond our shores.”

Due to the security concerns attendance at the event will be by ticket only. You can apply by visiting https://rwcms.co.uk

A collection will be held on the day of the service. Donations can also be made via https://www.railwaybenefitfund.org.uk/donate
