Giving in memory of a loved one

In memory donations are a very special way to remember, celebrate and share the life of a loved one either at their funeral or around a commemorative date such as birthdays or anniversaries.

In memory donations

Family, friends and colleagues often wish to make a donation to charity instead of sending flowers to the funeral. In memory donations can be collected before, during or after the service through notifications on social and in traditional media, in the order of service and online using We can assist with suggested text and also provide personalised service collection envelopes that can be placed on seats at the service.
When Fred Calcott (pictured) passed away, his family asked for donations for the Whittington Hospital Chemotherapy Unit instead of flowers. More than £2,100.00 was raised and Fred’s widow, Margaret, accompanied by her Son, made a poignant visit to the hospital to present the donations and thank the team for Fred’s care.
