Local commemorations of the centenary of the outbreak of the First World War began on Monday with a wreath-laying ceremony and service organised by Borough Market.
David Lyon, vice-chair of the Borough Market trustees, laid a wreath at the recently restored war memorial and a prayer was led by Rt Revd Mike Ward, a bishop of the Old Catholic Church who serves as chaplain to the Greater London district of the Royal British Legion.
In the market's middle road the Dean of Southwark, Very Revd Andrew Nunn, led a short service of commemoration.
On Sunday morning at St George's Cathedral Southwark's Roman Catholics will mark the anniversary of the start of World War I at the 11.30am Mass.
On Monday night local public buildings taking part in the nationwide 'Lights Out' initiative include Tower Bridge and the Home Office immigration offices at Becket House.
