Collecting at a funeral or memorial

If you wish to ask family and friends to make a donation at the funeral or memorial service, perhaps in lieu of flowers, we have a range of materials to help make this as straightforward as possible:

  • Our collection envelopes allow people to add Gift Aid, increasing each donation by £2.50 for every £10 donated at no cost to them.
  • Our collection boxes provide another easy way to donate.

To request these items, please call 020 7802 3200 or email

Setting up a funeral tribute page

You can also create an online funeral tribute page, which will enable you to share practical funeral arrangements with your family and friends, as well as offering them the ability to make their donation online and leave a message of condolence or light a virtual candle.

If you have any questions about setting up a tribute page, please call 020 7802 3200 or email
