The RAF Association Remembrance Garden is located just a few minutesí walk from the awe-inspiring Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas, Staffordshire.
Opened in September 2009, by Her Royal Highness Princess Anne the garden is dedicated to all those who selflessly devoted their lives to their country, regardless of the length of service. Serving and ex-serving RAF personnel, the families who supported them, as well as those working in the aviation industry or involved with commercial airlines; anyone, in fact, who shared the ethos of the RAF.
Family, friends, colleagues or anyone wishing to celebrate the life of a person or organisation associated with the RAF may place one of our specially-designed remembrance crosses or stones in the garden. These commemoratives may be placed in memory of someone whenever and wherever they died, at home or overseas, in action or off-duty, or during retirement.
A Service of Remembrance is held in the garden each spring and to dedicate the crosses and stones which have been laid throughout the previous twelve months.
