I bought the poppy in memory of 4 family members who fought in the First World War My grandad survived fighting on the Somme
It is planted in a large peace lily that sits on the hearth
The names of the 4 relatives are on a label on the back of one of the petals with a note of their burial places
The poppy has been used in the parish church for two Remembrance Day services 2015 and 2016 both times placed in a smaller peace lily by the war memorial
I visited the weeping window when it was displayed in Derby Awesome sight Very moving
