Commemorating Remembrance Day in Camden

Camden and its partners pause to remember those who lost their lives due to conflict.

There will be a number of wreath-laying ceremonies and services of remembrance across the borough, starting from Thursday (9 November). The Council will also be observing the two-minute silence on Armistice Day (11 November) at 11am. A detailed timetable of events can be found below.

Councillor Nazma Rahman, Mayor of Camden

This week’s events and ceremonies are a chance for everyone in Camden to get together to remember those who have lost their lives due to conflict and those who continue to be affected by war.

This is also a time to remember the servicepeople who have experienced life-changing injuries or had their mental health affected as a result of war. More than a century after it was founded, we thank the British Legion and their Poppy Appeal for the work they do to provide lifelong support to everyone who has been in the Armed Forces.

We know that this is a very unsettling and frightening time for many of our residents due to the escalating events in the Middle East. This Remembrance Day and always, our hearts go out to the Israelis and Palestinians who are impacted by this terrible situation.

Our thoughts and prayers are also with all our Camden residents who continue to be impacted by the war in Ukraine and concerned about the safety and security of relatives and loved ones.

I hope that many Camden residents will be able to join us for the two-minute silence on Armistice Day and for our many remembrance events across the borough to remember and show solidarity with our local communities.
