Quaker Service Memorial

A memorial to commemorate the work of the Friends Ambulance Unit and the Friends Relief Service

An overview of the organisation/group:

has been built at the National Memorial Arboretum, Alrewas, Staffordshire. It presents the Religious Society of Friends and what Quakers stand for to millions of people in the UK and abroad, and provides a space for reflection and silent worship. Its simple structure in stone brings to mind a meeting for worship. The circular seating serves as a setting for contemplation and expresses our vision of reconciliation in times of conflict. Wording carved on the seats illustrates Friends’ commitment and witness to peace.
