The weekend saw thousands come together to commemorate those who lost their lives in battle.

Across the borough many joined together for Remembrance Day and Remembrance Sunday to remember those who lost their lives in fighting in conflict.

In Edgware, Jewish Care residents and Second World War veterans from their homes attended a Remembrance Sunday service, with D-D veteran and French Legion d'Honneur recipient Hyman Pittal laying a wreath on behalf of the charity.

Residents then returned to Clore Manor in Hendon for lunch, with singing from Lionel Rosenfeld and the Shabbaton Choir.

Chipping Barnet MP Theresa Villiers attended commemorations at St John the Baptist Church in High Barnet, which saw many gathered around the war memorial in the centre of town.

Ms Villiers said: "The past few years have seen a series of centenary dates enabling us to look back on the appalling loss of life and incredible heroism of the First World War.

"Next year, we will be marking the centenary of the very first Armistice Day which brought World War One to an end at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918.

"I am sure this will be a very big occasion for the whole nation as we once again pay tribute to the people who lost their lives or suffered terrible injuries in that conflict."

She added it was important to reflect on those serving in the armed forces today.

The Mayor of Barnet joined troops in Hendon for a Remembrance Day service, which also included the laying of a wreath on the town's war memorial.
