World War I

Cloister WWI MemorialsPoppies_2_smaller.jpg

Here at the Cathedral we commemorate the 19 soldiers who have individual memorials (as well as others listed) in the Cloister stained glass windows.  On the anniversary of their death we put a silk poppy stem in the window (metal frame) to remember the individuals. 
Book a tour of the Cloisters and hear from our WWI guide the poignant stories about these solders and their connections to Worcester and with the Cathedral.

The St George miltary chapel is focus of commemoration of those who gave their life in war. There is a service in the St George Chapel each Friday morning at 11.30am – 12.05pm.

This year's Qatia Day service is 27 April 2019
