Remembered Today:

What happens to all the wreaths?

Recommended Posts

Having just passed my local war memorial and seen this Novembers wreaths lying in puddles of water, looking fairly sorry for themselves, I wondered what happens to all the wreaths that get laid on November 11th.

The ones I have seen are far too bedraggled to be used again next year, so where do they all go?

Can anyone enlighten me?

Sort of related. Whilst trying to find out some info' on the cenotaph (in relation to another thread) I found out that wreaths laid at the cenotaph are removed after 2 weeks

I visited London with my family last year and took them along to St Paul's Cathedral to see the Gallipoli Memorial in the crypt there. I am very pleased to say that all of the wreaths were still in place in late July (since 25 April) and I think that apart from one at the foot of Kitchener's tomb, they were the only wreaths which we saw. A very nice gesture on the part of the Dean to have left them in place and much appreciated.
