The Bell Ceremony is an important part of daily Cathedral life, and this service was to commemorate the reopening of the Buffs Chapel where the ceremony usually takes place.

The chapel, also known as the Warriors chapel, or St Michael's Chapel, had been closed for the past eight years due to conservation work being carried out on the nearby Great South Window, and later, on the chapel itself.

Every day at 11am, the bell of HMS Canterbury is struck, a member of the Regimental Association of The Queen’s Own Buffs turns a page in the Books of Life, and we pause to remember all those who have died in the two World Wars, and all subsequent conflicts.

Now that the service has returned to it's rightful place, a special service was held with prayers from the Dean of Canterbury.
