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.  This year will be no different and we are determined that Covid-19 will not stop us honouring those who sacrificed so much for us all.

Dedicate a Tribute in 2020

The close date for Tributes to be planted in the Fields of Remembrance has now passed, but this year for the first you can leave a Tribute in our Virtual Field of Remembrance. 

Visit the Virtual Field now to read Tributes from others and write your own to remember those who have fallen whilst serving our country.

      Row upon row of Tributes with their scarlet poppies, personal messages and photographs bring home to all of us that Remembrance is a deeply important and personal event.

      While it is our current hope to plant Tributes in the same way as we have done for over 90 years, if location or national restrictions are in place which means this is not possible, we will plant your Tribute in another Field or on our virtual Field of Remembrance.

      All Tributes intended for the Belfast Field of Remembrance, Saltwell Park (Gateshead) Field of Remembrance, and Cardiff Field of Remembrance will now instead be planted, and dedicated as part of the Opening Service at the National Memorial Arboretum Field of Remembrance and Virtual Field of Remembrance due to local restrictions.

      Although the Opening Service will be closed to the public, it will be filmed and available to watch on this page, from 10 November 2020.

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

      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. All the fields are open during daylight hours.

      Due to the current restrictions, we have made the difficult decision to close all of our opening services to protect the public, staff, and volunteers. All Fields will be open after the Service from 1.00pm.

      Although the Opening Service will be closed to the public, it will be filmed and available to watch on this page, from 10 November 2020.

      Please note that on 11 November (Armistice Day), the Fields can be very crowded.

      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 Legion organising Fields of Remembrance in other five locations. Altogether, volunteers plant more than 120,000 Tributes across the UK.
