The commemoration began on Saturday evening with a moving performance of Mozart's Requiem by St Edward's Choir and Orchestra, including readings of letters from men in the trenches. On Sunday morning there was an Act of Remembrance when the names on the memorials were read, and a Two Minute Silence at 11am. The Parish Service of Remembrance started at 6.30pm as part of the national “Battle’s O’er Tribute”. In the Act of Remembrance members of the congregation read out individual names of those commemorated on the memorials, and the Two Minute Silence was preceded and ended by Last Post and Reveille.
