Announcements

Remembrance Sunday 12 November

Every year on Remembrance Sunday we and the other nations of the Commonwealth remember those who gave their lives in the service of their countries during the two World Wars. We cordially invite you to join us on this occasion. 

An inter-denominational Service of Remembrance will be held at St Alban's Church, Churchillparken, 1263 Copenhagen K starting at 1030 hrs.

Unfortunately, due to the limited number of seats in St Alban's Church, it is not possible to reserve seats for this Service. As the church is usually very crowded, it is advisable to come early.

There will be a short Act of Remembrance and wreath-laying ceremony held at Bispebjerg Kirkegård, Frederiksborgvej 125, 2400 Copenhagen NV, starting at 1215 hrs.

Everyone attending the ceremony is requested to enter by the main gate of Bispebjerg Kirkegård by 1200 hrs.  Upon entering through the main gate drivers are requested to follow signs to "Søndre Kapel" where parking is available.

During the ceremony please stand behind the wreath-bearers, or to the side of those laying wreaths.
