Funeral and memorial collections

Many families collect donations in memory at a loved one's funeral or celebration of life as a special way of remembering them. Find out how we can help you with both online and in person memorial collections..

Collecting donations online

You may decide to have an online collection for your loved one. If so, read our information about creating a tribute fund. Tribute funds can be shared with friends and family so they can leave donations and messages at any time.

Collecting donations in person

If you choose to have a memorial collection at a funeral, or celebration of life, we can give you collection envelopes. The envelopes include a Gift Aid form, which will help the money you raise to go further.

If you are making funeral arrangements, your funeral director may be able to help you plan this collection.
