Making a donation in memory of the deceased after a funeral
Many people prefer charitable donations in lieu of flowers and we are able to collect and acknowledge these for you at no additional cost.
Deciding who should benefit
It is likely you will have a charity or good cause in mind who you would like to benefit from the money donated at the funeral. People usually select a charity relating to the deceased for example, a local hospice that they stayed at, or a charity linked to their cause of death such as a cancer, heart or kidney charity. If you are posting an obituary, the details of a chosen charity can be mentioned within the text.
If you are arranging a funeral and are unsure about who to choose, do remember that you can donate money to more than one charity.
Making a donation
We must stress that donations can only be received as cheques, these should be made payable to the selected charity
At Bennetts Funeral Directors, we can collate all monies on your behalf and send of to the selected charity. We will, for every donation received with a legible address, send a letter from us on behalf of the family to thank them. Cheque donations only can be received and should be made payable to the selected charity.
If you would like to make charitable donations in memory of a loved one, please enclose a note saying who the charitable donation is in memory of and who it is from. Please download the Gift Aid Donation Form to be completed and enclosed before sending to either:
