The Preston Pals War Memorial trustees have arranged a commemorative service to take place on platforms three and four.
Pals March, a tune recently rediscovered, is to be played by the military band from Weeton Barracks.
The last post will also ring out across the platforms, along with hymns, prayers and the national anthem.
The service, taking place on Saturday 23 July at 11am, is to be attended by the deputy Lord Lieutenant Colonel Alan Jolley and a group of Chelsea pensioners and their Chaplain from the Royal Chelsea Hospital.
