In lieu of flowers

A gift in lieu of flowers

Honour a loved one by giving a gift to St Barnabas House, in lieu of flowers at the funeral.


Families often ask for donations to St Barnabas House instead of flowers at the funeral of a loved one. The phrase ‘in lieu of flowers’ doesn’t necessarily mean that there will be no flowers at the funeral, often it means that the family may have decided to limit floral tributes to immediate family only, and others are invited to make a donation to a named charity if they wish.

There are a variety of ways in which people can make gifts in memory at a funeral. Your funeral director will be able to advise you on the different options.

If you would like some special envelopes for the funeral, please contact us to order them, and we will either send them straight out to you or arrange for them to be available for you to pick up from reception at St Barnabas House.

When you contact us, please simply let us know the following:

  • How many envelopes you need.
  • The date of the service.
  • The name and address to send the envelopes to.
  • The name of the person the collection is in memory of.
  • Contact details for acknowledgements

We’re here to help, so please do not hesitate to contact us.
