Relatives and guests attend the Titanic Memorial service at Belfast City Hall, Northern Ireland, Sunday.

The 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic was being remembered at events across the world Sunday, including in Belfast, where the fateful ship was built.

A memorial store featuring the names of those who died was unveiled in the Northern Ireland city on Sunday morning.

It is the first Titanic memorial to list all victims alphabetically, with no distinction between passengers and crew members, or between first- and third-class travelers.

On Saturday, a concert featuring a performance by Bryan Ferry was followed by a torch-lit procession to the memorial site.

Meanwhile, a service was held at the North Atlantic wreck site on cruise ship MS Balmoral, which is retracing the Titanic's route, the BBC reported.

A minute's silence was held and wreaths cast into the sea at the moment it sank.
