In addition there will also be an expanded march-past the Cenotaph after the service, followed by a national service of commemoration and thanksgiving in the evening in Westminster Abbey.

There will also be a national concert to mark the centenary of the end of the First World War in Birmingham, supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government.
