One hundred years ago at the end of the First World War, individuals and communities sought ways of honouring those who had been involved.  This special tour in an around the Cathedral will look at a variety of memorials which were erected here after the First World War.  Some commemorate the dead, others give thanks for the living.

Military historian Jonathan Walker will talk about the fascinating stories and military actions behind the tablets and bronzes as well as the impact of the war on Devon communities. Diane Walker, who has studied the memorials of Exeter Cathedral, will explore the origins of these monuments and share with you some intriguing family connections with the Cathedral.

Tours start at 11:30am.
