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. You can still make a donation in memory of a loved one and support the Armed Forces community today.

The planting of the Tributes and the Opening Services of the Fields of Remembrance in 2020 were held before the national lockdown in November and we captured these moments for you to view.

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.
