Donate in memory

Donations in memory of loved ones play a key role in supporting our work.

Whilst flowers will fade with time, donations made in memory of loved ones will continue to benefit the lives of our patients and their families not only now, but in the future.

Many supporters request donations in lieu of flowers at funerals and memorial services and we are very grateful to those who choose to support us in this way.

When planning a funeral or memorial service you may wish to set up a Tribute Fund to collect donations online. This can be set up in just a few minutes, in memory of the person who has died. Once the fund is set up you can share it with friends and family, add details about the funeral, and share photos, videos and memories.

Tribute Funds are the perfect way to collect funeral donations in support of St Elizabeth Hospice. Any donation no matter how big or small can be placed in a Tribute Fund and will be held permanently in lasting memory of your loved one. Click here to find out more about St Elizabeth Tribute Funds.

If you would like to collect money at the funeral or memorial service, we can provide you or your funeral director with our Remembering Someone Special donation envelopes.

The envelopes make it simple for friends and family to donate and to add Gift Aid to their donation, making it worth 25% more at no extra cost to them. Some people choose to insert the envelopes with the order of service. If you choose to set up a Tribute Fund and use Remembering Someone Special envelopes, we are pleased  to be able to update the Tribute Fund total with the money raised at the service.

Our Remembering Someone Special envelopes are available free from our fundraising team. To request the envelopes, please call 01473 723600 or email

Other ways to donate In Memory

You could dedicate a leaf or decorative rock on our Memory Tree to a loved one. The name of the person you are remembering will be engraved on a solid brass, aluminium or copper leaf or bronze rock and displayed on our Memory Tree.
