National Memorial Arboretum 8610

Alrewas, England, Staffordshire, Lichfield

Brief Description

The National Memorial Arboretum is intended as a national living focus for remembrance. It commemorates those of the armed forces and civil authorities who have given their lives in the line of duty. There are currently around 50,000 trees, some planted in avenues, a chapel and several memorials.


The idea of the arboretum came from Commander David Childs CBE, and an appeal was launched in 1994. The site was developed on gifted land, previously gravel workings. The arboretum was opened in May 2001.
