The Last Post sounded in Hampstead this morning as those who lost their lives in wars were remembered.

An interfaith service at Hampstead Whitestone Pond War Memorial attracted a large crowd, and wreaths were laid by dignitaries including Camden’s mayor, councillor Larraine Revah, police borough commander Penny Banham and the Baroness Garden of Frognal.

Veterans were also honoured on Remembrance Sunday, with services held across Camden.

Today’s service was conducted by the Rev Ewan King of the Heath Street Baptist Church, with psalms read by Rev Peter Blackburn of Christ Church, and Rabbi Jonathan Wittenberg, of the New North London Synagogue.

Anne Charvet of the Hampstead Quakers read a reflection, and Mustafa Field of the Faith Forum for London took readings from the Quran.

On Sunday, MP Sir Keir Starmer laid a wreath at Euston Station after a parade from St Pancras Church. There was a service at the Prisoners of War Memorial in Camden High Street, and St Jude’s Church in Hampstead Garden Suburb held a special service on Sunday.
