Funeral Collections

Arranging a funeral collection

If you’re planning to ask for donations to be made at a loved one’s funeral or memorial service, we’re extremely grateful that you’ve thought of us at this time. This page has some information that may help you.

Funeral donation envelopes
We‘ve special In Memory donation envelopes you can give to people attending the funeral. They can be provided to people as they enter or leave the service, or you may want to place them on seats at the venue. The envelopes also make it easy for friends and family to let us know if their donation is eligible for Gift Aid, increasing the value of each donation. We’re also able to provide collection boxes if this is something you would like.

If you’d prefer your donations to support all our work please email

Please provide your full contact details, the name of the person you are remembering and the number of envelopes you’d like.

Arranging a collection online
You may wish to create an online page to share with others. This allows anyone who can’t be with you on the day to make a donation or share a message.

Starting a page in memory of someone special means you can share thoughts, light candles online as well as make donations. For many, it is the start of an Incredible Memories fund that you can keep visiting for years to come.

Funeral Directors
If you’d like to ask a funeral director to help you collect donations, they are usually happy to help with this. You can provide them with our contact details and we’ll be happy to assist them if they need any help from us.
