The Armed Forces Memorial and the Roll of Honour: A Guide for Bereaved Families


For guidance for the bereaved families of service personnel and veterans and information about the Armed Forces Memorial and the Roll of Honour



The Armed Forces Memorial at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire contains the names of members of the UK Armed Forces, Regular and Reserve, who have died on duty since 1948.

The Memorial was dedicated in 2007 and included almost 16,000 names. Each year, the Armed Forces Memorial Naming Panel, chaired by the Defence Services Secretary, supported by senior members of each Service and a senior medical adviser, considers the names of serving service personnel who have died during the preceding year in order to determine those who meet the necessary criteria to be included on the Memorial. A service for families is held at the National Memorial Arboretum, usually in July, to commemorate those personnel.
