Event description

Description

Cavell Nurses' Trust is pleased to be working with the Florence Nightingale Foundation to invite you to a special service at Westminster Abbey commemorating the Centenary of Edith Cavell's reinterment as well as the life of Florence Nightingale.

The event marks exactly one hundred years since Edith Cavell's body returned to the UK from Belgium. In 1919 crowds of people lined the streets of London as Edith's coffin, mounted on a gun carriage with a Union Jack flag draped over it, made its way from Victoria Station to Westminster Abbey for a special ceremony.

Please register for tickets by clicking the 'register' button and completing the short form. Ticket registration will close on 2nd March 2019. Tickets will be posted to you following this date.

If you have any specific access requirements please do let us know.

Hope to see you there!
