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

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.

The closing date for submitting a Tribute for this year’s UK based Fields of Remembrance has now passed, however:

Visiting the Fields of Remembrance

Each November, we welcome members of the public from across the UK to join us to honour and remember 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. Please note that on 11 November (Armistice Day), they can be very crowded.

Find out more about each of the six Fields 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 in the grounds of 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 Legion organises Fields of Remembrance in six locations where volunteers plant more than 120,000 tributes in fields across the UK.
