Thousands of residents, veterans and school children across Camden, Haringey and Barnet fell silent yesterday and this morning to honour the sacrifices of British servicemen and women killed in conflict.
Ceremonies were held yesterday at St Jude’s Church, in Hampstead Garden Suburb, and Golders Green clock tower memorial to mark Remembrance Sunday.
The Middlesex Regiment Association and Hornsey Cadets also held a short wreath-laying service at the war memorial in Park Road, Crouch End.
This morning’s annual two minute’s silence - at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month - followed to mark the 95th anniversary of the World War One armistice, when guns fell silent along the Western Front in 1918.
The Mayor of Camden took part in a “laying of the wreath” ceremony at All Hallows Church, in Savernake Road, Hampstead, while children from Hampstead Hill School travelled to Whitestone Pond, in Hampstead Heath, to pay their own respects.
