Our work making Remembrance products runs alongside our national Getting You Back To Work service, which supports veterans with health conditions to find the jobs they want in their local communities. In 2018, we celebrated supporting 1,000 wounded, injured and sick veterans into civilian employment with our Patron, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall.
Poppies, wreaths and Remembrance symbols
In 1922, we made our first Remembrance poppy for The Royal British Legion. Millions of poppies later, we are still proudly continuing this important tradition. We have also got a long history of producing the Royal Family’s wreaths.
Home of the poppy
Last year, our 24-strong factory team in Richmond, supported by six home workers, made over six million poppies, 146,000 wreaths and 780,000 wooden Remembrance symbols.
From the beginning, our production team was made up of injured First World War soldiers. Today, we’re still employing veterans who served in later conflicts and the dependents of veterans with physical and mental health conditions, some of whom have worked at the factory for over 40 years making Remembrance products.
The Poppy Appeal
All donations we receive from making Remembrance products are given to The Royal British Legion’s Poppy Appeal. We do not sell poppies, wreaths and Remembrance symbols directly. Please visit The Royal British Legion website or call 01622 717172 to order yours.

We warmly welcome visitors on pre-arranged two-hour tours of the factory in Richmond, Surrey.
