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.
