Will you remember them?

Every year, we are proud to display Tributes at our Fields of Remembrance from thousands of supporters, each bearing personal hand-written messages in honour of a loved one.

At our Fields of Remembrance, supporters are invited to write a personal message onto our wooden Tributes to honour a fallen loved one; their Service, regiment, or unit; a general message of Remembrance and thanks; or to remember the contribution of a wider community.

In 2023, our volunteers planted over 40,000 Tributes as a mark of Remembrance and support for our Armed Forces community.

What are the Fields of Remembrance?

Each November, thousands of people show their support for our Armed Forces community with a personal Tribute. These Tributes are tailored to the supporters preferred symbol of Remembrance, so that every faith is represented. Options include the Cross, Star of David, a Khanda, the Om, and the Poppy Tribute.

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.

While the Fields have now closed for 2023, you can view some of the Tributes made to remember our fallen this year in our Virtual Field of Remembrance below.

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.
