Poppy Wreath at Lydiard Park Fields of Remembrance

The Tributes planted in our Fields of Remembrance each carry a personal message to someone who lost their life in Service for our country.

Every year we take great care and attention in planting thousands of personal Tributes made by members of the public throughout the UK. We start receiving Tributes for our Fields of Remembrance in September, with the Fields opening in October and November.


Virtual Field of Remembrance

The time has passed to make a dedication on our virtual Field of Remembrance. Please check back in September to leave a Tribute on our Field. Alternatively, you can make a donation in the memory of a loved one.

Visiting the Fields of Remembrance

Each November, we welcome members of the public from across the UK, to join us and honour the memory of loved ones who we have sadly lost, serving in our Armed Forces.

The Fields of Remembrance are officially opened with a special Remembrance service where we honour The Two Minute Silence at 11am. A bugler plays the Last Post and the Exhortation is read.

You can find information about the six national Fields of Remembrance below, including how to find them and details of the opening services. Please note that the Fields may have to be closed to the public, at short notice, in line with national and local restrictions.

For any queries please email dedicate@britishlegion.org.uk or call us on 0345 845 1945.

Fields of Remembrance

The first Field of Remembrance

In November 1928, The Poppy Factory took a group of disabled veterans, a tray of poppies and a collecting tin to the grounds of St Margaret's Church at Westminster Abbey. It was not a large display, only a handful of poppies were planted around a single cross, but it caught the public attention and began a tradition that has grown over the decades.

Over 90 years later, the Poppy Factory still organises the Field of Remembrance at Westminster, with RBL organising Fields of Remembrance in other five locations. Altogether, volunteers plant more than 120,000 Tributes across the UK.
