On Monday 27 October, thanks to a History Group volunteer, all the names of the WW1 soldiers were read aloud at the Roll of Honour at the Tower of London as part of their WW1 commemorations. Some living relatives of the men were able to attend as well as members of Friends of Mill Road Cemetery.

On Saturday 13 December 2014 Cambridge United, with other football teams across the country, commemorated the Christmas Truce of 1914 and all those who served with honour during the Great War. The names of some of the local soldiers associated with Mill Road Cemetery were read aloud and there was a parade of the giant poppies which were made by St Matthews School under the tutelage of local artist Annabel Lee for the our 2014 Primary School event.
