The National Memorial Arboretum is a charity run by staff and volunteers and is part of The Royal British Legion family.
The National Memorial Arboretum is the UK's year-round centre of Remembrance, a living and lasting memorial to commemorate and celebrate:
•Those who have given their lives in the service of their country, 
•All who have served and those who have suffered as a result of conflict,
•Others who for specific or appropriate reasons are commemorated on the site. 









The Arboretum is a unique haven of peace, contemplation and hope for the future. It consists of 150 acres of wooded parkland within the National Forest in Staffordshire where visitors can both enjoy and learn about the trees and their surroundings, and reflect upon their special symbolism. 
They receive around 300,000 visitors per year, including Service personnel, veterans, students of all ages, groups and individuals and there are over 200 special events held here each year. The Act of Remembrance, including a Silence, is observed daily in the Millennium Chapel. 
The Arboretum is home to the striking Armed Forces Memorial which commemorates those who have been killed on duty or as a result of terrorism from the end of the Second World War to the current conflict in Afghanistan.
