Pikemen and musketeers escort Launderers' Royal Charter from Southwark Cathedral to Glaziers Hall

The livery company, which is based at Glaziers Hall, held its annual service at Southwark Cathedral.

After the service the company's new Royal Charter, which was granted by the Privy Council in February and sealed in June, was carried in procession from Cathedral Street to Montague Close.

The congregation stood on either side of Montague Close to applaud as the procession passed by.

The service was led by the cathedral's sub dean, Canon Andrew Nunn.
