The National Ambulance Memorial Service is held to honour, remember and thank the members of the ambulance community who have lost their lives while working for the ambulance services of England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey, Gibraltar, and the Isle of Man.


Beginning at 1.30pm, the event will commence with an indoor service which includes a poignant candle lighting ceremony for the fallen. Following the indoor service, attendees will walk down in a procession to the ambulance memorial garden where a Roll of Honour will be read out for ambulance staff who have passed away since the last memorial service.


The service is open to anyone who would like to pay tribute to the members of our ambulance family no longer with us. If you'd like to attend the National Ambulance Memorial Service, please visit:
