Leave tributes to fallen on memorial wall

16 September 2021

A virtual tribute wall to fallen colleagues is now open as part of National Police Memorial Day (NPMD).

The website wall, which allows friends and family to leave tributes to those they have lost, was a successful part of last year’s memorial day.

It is the first part of a planned weekend of events, beginning with the lighting up of several landmark buildings in blue on Saturday 25 September. This will include Lincoln Cathedral, where the NPMD service will be held.

The service, which due to Covid-19 restrictions is limited in numbers and is by invitation only, takes place at the cathedral at 2pm on Sunday 26 September.

However, the event will be recorded and streamed on the NPMD website from 4pm that day.

Hertfordshire Police Federation secretary Al Wollaston says: “The remembrance wall is a great way to share memories of loved ones and colleagues, and last year’s messages were a wonderful tribute to those we have lost.

“Do take the opportunity to sign the wall if you can – and make sure to take the time to watch the memorial service on Sunday. Though coronavirus restrictions mean that once again we can’t be together physically, we are a unified policing family and this is a great way to show that and support each other.”

On Monday 27 September, police forces in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland will then join together to remember fallen colleagues in a unified act of remembrance at 11am.

Footage from the cathedral will also be made available to all forces to use as part of the act of remembrance.

Visit the NPMD website to leave a tribute.
