Service of Remembrance

National Memorial Arboretum

11.30am Saturday 11th September 2021

This years’ service will be held at 11.30am on Saturday 11th September 2021 at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire. The service will commemorate and remember all those who lost their lives in service of the Crown as a result of the conflict in N. Ireland. The chapel service will be followed by a parade down to the Ulster Ash Grove for the laying of wreathes. Following the laying of the wreathes, there will be a 20-minute pause before the parade forms up for the return march to the visitor centre during which the our Patron, General Sir Robert Pascoe will take the salute accompanied by other guests of honour. The service is open to all and all Associations are welcome to parade their standards. It would be appreciated if Associations arranging for groups of their members to attend could notify us of numbers and confirm if their standard will be parading. We look forward to welcoming you to our annual memorial service.

Unfortunately, Covid-19 may well cause further problems so we will keep a close eye on developments. There may need to be some changes made to gatherings and protocols but please be assured that we will keep you advised in a timely manner.
