Families of people who died in World War One are being asked to attend a ceremony at the University of Roehampton next month.

The two minutes' silence will be held at the Society of the Sacred Heart's war memorial on November 11, from 10.45am.

The 11-metre memorial holds plaques commemorating 275 men and women, many who died as a result of the war.

They were relatives of the nuns and children who attended the Society of the Sacred Heart Convent school, which was located on the Digby Stuart College Campus.

Jackie Brown, head of Digby Stuart College, said: "November 11 this year will obviously be a very important reminder of our past, so anyone who lost a relative and who knows their name is on the memorial would be welcomed at our commemorations.

"We would be honoured to have them mark the two minutes’ silence with our students and staff."
