Wimbledon War Memorial, Wimbledon Village

Mayor of Merton, Councillor Mary Curtin said: “Remembrance Day is a time for the nation to come together to pay tribute to those who sacrificed their lives for this country. I hope residents will join us at one of the boroughs remembrance services to honour the brave individuals who are gone but certainly not forgotten.
