St Paul's Cathedral launches online memorial book

While the City continues to be closed and we remain scattered geographically, St Paul’s Cathedral, which has long been the symbolic heart of the City of London, is embodying the spirit of solidarity and support in the City and across the country.  This week the cathedral launched its online memorial book, Remember Me, for those whose lives have been tragically lost to COVID-19.  It can be found at www.rememberme2020.uk where you can also watch a moving introductory video from Liveryman and Brewer HRH The Prince of Wales.

David Ison, Dean of St Paul’s Cathedral has written the following:

“St Paul’s Cathedral in London has been for centuries a place where significant national events have been prayed for and remembered, from the outcomes and losses of war to the tragedy of Grenfell Tower – events which have touched the lives of many or all communities across the country. This on-line book of remembrance continues that tradition in a changing world, and makes it available across the country, as together we remember and pray for one another.

If someone you love or care for has died as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and they had lived in the United Kingdom, you are encouraged to remember them on this site.”
