Glasgow’s Cenotaph

Every year in the centre of Glasgow, at George Square, crowds of people gather to remember those who gave their lives in conflicts throughout the last century. This commemoration is focused not just on the remembrance service and its associated silence, but also on the cenotaph located in from of the City Chambers.

Since its unveiling in 1924 people from throughout the city and beyond have congregated at this monument to pay tribute to the fallen. Following four years of war on the 11 November 1918 the armistice was announced spreading celebration and relief throughout the victorious nations.
