Northern Ireland Veterans’ Association Service of Remembrance

September 9, 2023 all-day
National Memorial Arboretum
Croxall Road Alrewas
DE13 7AR

This years’ service will be held at 11.30am on Saturday 9th September 2023 at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire. The service will commemorate and remember all those who lost their lives in service of the Crown as a result of the conflict in N. Ireland. The chapel service will be followed by a parade down to the Ulster Ash Grove for the laying of wreathes.

Following the laying of the wreathes, there will be a 15-minute pause before the parade forms up for the return march to the visitor centre during which our Patron, General Sir Roger Neil Wheeler GCB CBE, will take the salute accompanied by other guests of honour.

The service is open to all, and all Associations are welcome to parade their standards. It would be appreciated if Associations arranging for groups of their members to attend could notify us of numbers and confirm if their standard will be parading. We look forward to welcoming you to our annual memorial service and an information desk will be set up at 10.00hrs on the day.






We are a county based Regiment, bound together by a closely-knit family spirit.  Our approach is classless, based on mutual respect and trust, where developing and believing in our soldiers is paramount.  We are a forward looking, self-starting and welcoming team for whom the mission remains key.
