Many people choose to ask for donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral or memorial service, raising money to help others in memory of their loved one.


If you are in the process of arranging a funeral or memorial service for a loved one, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for thinking of ellenor at this incredibly difficult time.

You or your Funeral Director can easily request donation envelopes using the Donation Envelope Request form on this page or by calling 01322 626 509.
