National Ambulance Memorial Service

Since 2004 TASC, formerly The Ambulance Services Benevolent Fund, has arranged and hosted a national memorial service to honour, remember and thank our ambulance family members in England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey, Gibraltar, and the Isle of Man, who are no longer with us.

The next service is taking place on the 19th September 2024 at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.

The service is open to anyone who wishes to pay tribute to the departed members of our ambulance community.

Roll of honour

Roll of Honour

We’re proud to host an online Roll of Honour to remember those who have lost their lives while in service with the UK’s ambulance services, and it’s a place where you can share special tributes, stories, photos and videos in memory of ambulance colleagues and loved ones who have passed away.

The Roll of Honour also plays a very important role in the National Ambulance Memorial Service, as the names of those who have passed away since the last service are read out in the memorial garden.
