Anzac Commemoration Sunday services will be held at several locations across the St George region this weekend.

The Rockdale RSL Sub-branch will hold its Commemoration Service on Sunday, April 14 at 2.30pm.

Participants are to assemble at the Rockdale Uniting Church, 9-11 Bay Street, Rockdale at 2.15pm.

Once the service is completed, there will be a walk to the Rockdale Seven Ways Cenotaph Wall of Remembrance for a Wreath Laying Ceremony at 3.30pm.

On completion of the ceremony, participants can attend a concert by the Kogarah Concert Band.

There will be no Dawn Service on Anzac Day as the Rockdale RSL Club this year is closed to the building of a new club.

St Mark's Anglican Church at South Hurstville will hold its annual Anzac Service at the church at 15 The Mall, starting at 2pm.

Former Governor of NSW, Dame Marie Bashir will be speaking at the service, along with Mrs Jill Talty who will deliver a tribute to her late father, decorated fighter pilot Frederick Lawrenson who was shot down over Korea in 1952 and was listed as Missing in Action.

The St Mark's Anglican Church Service is unique in that it also recognises the New Zealand and Turkish troops who fought at Gallipoli and involves the participation of representatives of their local communities. The service is organised in conjunction with the local South Hurstville RSL Sub-branch.

Mortdale RSL Sub-branch will hold its Anzac Commemoration Sunday service at the War Memorial at Mortdale Memorial Park.

There will be no march this year and people are asked to assemble in the park at 9.45am. The service will commence at 10am and conclude at 11am.

Oatley RSL will hold its Commemorative Sunday service at 2pm.

Participants are asked to assemble outside the club at 1.45pm for a 2pm march down to Oatley Memorial Park. Following the service people are invited back to the club for refreshments.
