Gloucester Cathedral to pay tribute to county's fallen

First published in News

GLOUCESTER Cathedral will pay tribute to the county's fallen on Monday to commemorate the start of the First World War.

The names of Gloucestershire’s fallen will be read out from 9am by members of the clergy and parish representatives in the cathedral’s fifteenth century Lady Chapel where a new stained glass window commemorating the life and works of Great War poet and composer, Ivor Gurney, can be seen.

Between 10pm and 11pm that night, Gloucester Cathedral will join millions of individuals, households and companies in a national moment of reflection for “Lights Out” organised by The Royal British Legion.

Everyone in the UK is being encouraged to turn off their lights – leaving only a single light or candle for this symbolic act of reflection and hope.
