Visiting the Fields of Remembrance
Each November, members of the public come from across the UK, to join together and honour the memory of loved ones who we were 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 details of opening services and how to find them.
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.
