A memorial to commemorate the work of the Friends Ambulance Unit and the Friends Relief Service 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.
To mark International Day of Peace in 2016, a Meeting for Worship will be held on Wednesday 21 September at 2:30 pm at the Quaker service memorial which is located at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire

QSMT wishes to make contact with as many surviving FAU and FRS members or their families as possible. The trust has contact already with a number of families but there may be more we have not heard from.
