Memorial donations are a great way to create a lasting legacy of someone who has passed away. It has become to norm to have a retiring collection for a charity, these are requested in lieu of flowers. Any charity can be chosen, and is often a charity that the deceased has supported for many years, or to one that has had an effect on them in later life.
We will handle all donations for you, we arrange for the collection to take place at the service, and then keep to collect open for approximately 4-6 weeks after the service. This is so those who couldn't make the service for whatever reason, can still have their donation added to the total made in the deceased's memory. We will then arrange for the collection to be sent to the charity and will inform you of the total collected.
Where possible we suggest that donations are made with a 'Gift Aid' decleration, this enable the chosen chairty to claim an extra 25% from the government. So every £1 given is worth £1.25 to the charity, and at no additional cost to yourself. Gift Aid forms can be found here.
Online donation collection service is also available, please speak to us about this.
We can help to arrange memorial jewellery using just a small amount of the ashes. There are many suppliers that offer this service, we use highly reputable companies that either turn the ashes into glass or diamond, depending on your wishes.
