Due to the latest national lockdown, this year's Civic Service of Remembrance will take place without a congregation, but a wreath will be laid by the clergy on behalf of the people and the city of Birmingham.

The service will be live streamed via the cathedral's YouTube channel from 10.55am on Sunday 8 November.

People are also encouraged to carry out their own acts of remembrance at home or school - such as playing the Last Post, reading a poem, paying tribute to relatives who served - and to share online using the hashtag #BhamRemembers.

Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Cllr Mohammed Azim, said: “It is very sad we are unable to gather together for the city’s annual Remembrance Sunday, but we will still remember the fallen who sacrificed so much.

“As the pandemic continues and we find ourselves in lockdown again, I’m asking Birmingham’s citizens to watch the live-streamed service from Birmingham Cathedral and take time to remember the men and women who died while serving their country.

“Please pay your respects at home and do not come into the city centre. We will remember them, wherever we are.”
