Thousands of people came out across Merseyside to pay their respects to the fallen on Remembrance Sunday .
Despite bitterly cold weather, huge crowds were there for Liverpool’s commemoration, centred around the Centotaph at St George’s Hall with service personnel, local dignitaries and veterans marching through the city to honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
This year’s service was especially poignant as it focused on the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Passchendale.
Joey the life size puppet from the National Theatre’s production of War Horse was at the service – to recognise the importance horses played in the infamous battle.
Representatives from all faiths helped to lead the service at the plateau, with Danielle Louise Thomas leading the crowds in singing the National Anthem.
Following the Last Post and the two minute silence, thousands of petals cascaded down from St George’s Hall in a very moving display.
