According to the BBC, the names of over 2,000 people who had served in conflicts over the past 100 years were submitted to the project. /VCG Photo

"It was a powerful way to offer sorrow and thanks for the past and continuing self-sacrifice of so many for the sake of their fellow human beings," said the dean of the cathedral, The Very Reverend Dr Jeffery John. /VCG Photo
