Where to Pay Your Respects This Remembrance Day in Liverpool

This weekend, Liverpool pays its respects to the fallen soldiers who gave their lives to secure and protect our freedom. This Remembrance Day in Liverpool will present a number of opportunities to silently thank those that gave their lives for our country and its people.

Liverpool was a key location and city during both global conflicts of the 20th century. As an important post and with a well-placed coastal position, it became a hub of activity for wartime operations.

We’ve rounded up all the locations that will hold services and processions as we come together to remember on Remembrance Day in Liverpool.
