Donations

Anyone wishing to make an online donation can do so by selecting the “Obituaries & Donations” tab on this website. Once the deceased’s obituary page has been selected, a donation can be made in their memory by clicking on the “Donate Now” button.

At the funeral service some people give their donations in loose cash or in a sealed envelope with their names and the charity written on the outside.

Other people post their donations to our office. These need to be in a sealed envelope with the following information:

  • Your name
  • Name of the deceased
  • Relevant charity

A short time after the funeral we will close the donation account and compile a list of names and donations made as a record for the bereaved family. Loose cash given at the service will be recorded on the list accordingly with no name. We will send all donations to the relevant charity and request that they send the bereaved family an acknowledgement letter of donations received. Online donations are sent directly to the charity concerned within days of the donation.

Please Note: Memory Giving (online donations only) takes 5% of online donations + card transaction fees (see www.memorygiving.com/our-fees.aspx for more information). Despite these fees, donating online creates a greater total due to the 25% Gift Aid.
