Glasgow’s World War One Commemoration Centenary Service

Transportation by Little’s

A special World War One Commemoration Service is to be held on 4th August at the historic Glasgow Cathedral the day after the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games come to an end. This service is being held to mark the 100th anniversary of the start of the First World War.

Many Heads of State will already be in Glasgow for the Commonwealth Games Closing Ceremony and Glasgow City Council has invited them to stay on for this unique service. The commemoration reflects on the human cost of the conflict which involved those from across the UK as well as the rest of the world.

The Lord Lieutenant, Glasgow’s Lord Provost Sadie Docherty will introduce the service remembering Britain’s role in the war. The ceremony will begin in the medieval Glasgow Cathedral and will then be followed by laying of wreaths at the Cenotaph in George Square. Although this is ticketed event it will be broadcast live on BBC television alongside two additional national events being held in Mons, Belgium and Westminster Abbey, London.
