Located in the heart of the country,the National Memorial Arboretum comprises 150 acres of trees and memorials devoted to the concept of Remembrance. Set within the National Forest of Staffordshire, near Lichfield, it was established in 1997, on former gravel and sand pits gifted from Lafarge Aggregates. It already contains 150 memorials of national significance.

The Arboretum is the home of the Armed Forces Memorial which was opened in October 2007. It is a striking and emotive memorial and has quickly assumed national significance. It gives recognition and thanks for those who have died whilst on duty or as a result of terrorist action since the Second World War and acknowledges the enduring sacrifice of those who mourn their loss.
