Remembrance Sunday

Remembrance Sunday


Members of the Institution will lay wreaths at various Remembrance events as they represent the Institution at Church and Civic Events. As with other years, we work closely with the Royal British Legion to mark Remembrance Sunday and Armistice Day, and we as an Institution pay our respects to those who served and sacrificed.

We remind members to take the opportunity of the National Minutes silence at 11 am on 11 November for their own quiet reflection wherever they are. The Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall traditionally starts a weekend of commemoration with events on Remembrance Sunday at various cenotaphs and churches.

Join with us as we mark this time of national remembrance and also look back at other years when we organised events from parades to our own Festival of Remembrance

Remember November

November has a number of national days of Commemoration and Remembrance, and as we move beyond these most recognisable days the ILOI have set aside November as a full month to Remember. It will provide an annual festival of Remembrance from joyous occasions such as the birthday of King William Prince of Orange to the more somber occasions of Armistice Day where we join with the nation in silence to remember the fallen in war.

This year we add to this calendar of commemoration our own thoughts and reflections on those who have died as a result of the Corona Pandemic, and those in the forefront of the battle against this silent enemy.

There are many events in our own history which we would do well to remember such as the 1641 Rebellion and Massacres which our Institution has done much to mark over the decades.
