RBL Branches

Branches are the lifeline of the Legion and the volunteers that run them work tirelessly to raise funds and provide welfare support whilst offering a social focus for their members to meet. They also play a key role in the recruiting and retention of members from within their local community’s and help raise the profile of The Royal British Legion at parades and public events.


Within the County of Derbyshire we have a large network of Royal British Legion Branches, currently there are forty-nine Branches and two sub-Branches. A full listing of Branches can be found below and also where their regular meetings are held.
