Remembrance Sunday is a national opportunity to remember the service and sacrifice of all those that have defended our freedoms and protected our way of life.
We remember the Armed Forces, and their families, from Britain and the Commonwealth, the vital role played by the emergency services and those who have lost their lives as a result of conflict or terrorism.
RBL 2023 Order of March
How can I take part in the Cenotaph Parade?
Please note, places for Cenotaph 2023 are now closed.
Each year, veterans participate in the March Past. Places to take part in the Cenotaph March Past on Remembrance Sunday 2023 will be allocated through service and unit associations. This year, for the first time, applications will also be open to veterans who are not members of an association. The number of people who can take part in the March Past is limited to 10,000 people due to capacity and the amount of time participants can reasonably be expected to stand.
Associations are asked to prioritise individuals who reflect the depth and breadth of the veteran community with priority given to:
Ex-service personnel and civilians from the UK and the Commonwealth who have served the Crown.
Wives, husbands, or civil partners of those who have died as a result of their service in His Majesty’s Armed Forces.
A carer of a veteran requiring wheelchair assistance.
Please note, this is a veterans’ parade, therefore serving Armed Forces personnel are not permitted to take part. Civilians cannot take part unless they meet the eligibility criteria above.
As any carer accompanying a veteran will be included within the 10,000-attendance cap; where appropriate, the option of one veteran assisting another for the duration of the dispersal should be considered.
Registration for individual wishing to march in the parade is now closed. If you have any questions, please email the Remembrance Events Team at: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you wish to attend the service as a spectator, further information will be made available on the website of the Department of Digital, Culture, Media & Sport in due course.
If you have any queries regarding the Cenotaph Dispersal, please contact the Remembrance Events Team by email at email@example.com.
