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.

    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. 

    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.

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

    Find out more about each of the 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 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.

    Watch as the Field of Remembrance grows thanks to our volunteers
