The Yass Returned and Services League Sub-Branch will facilitate Remembrance Day commemorations in Yass again this year.

The Remembrance Day service will be held at Yass Cenotaph, in front of the Yass Soldiers' Memorial Hall, on Monday, November 11, commencing at 10.45am.

People attending the service should arrive no later than 10.40am.

Remembrance Day marks the end of the First World War in 1918.

"Australia paid a heavy price for its involvement in the First World War in terms of lives lost and casualties; more than 60,000 were killed and 156,000 were wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner," Yass RSL Sub-Branch honorary secretary John Heggart said.

"The First World War had a significant impact on our country that is still felt today, not least the birth of the Anzacs and the Anzac spirit."
