We understand how important it is to pay tribute to your loved ones and continue to celebrate their lives.

There are many ways to pay tribute to a loved one. By dedicating a leaf on our beautiful Pilgrims Hospices Memory Trees you can create a lasting tribute to remember someone you love while making a real difference for other families who need our care.

Unfortunately, due to the current Coronavirus situation, it is not possible to enter the hospices to visit your dedication on the Memory Trees, without prior agreement. If you have a leaf or dove on the Memory Tree, and would like to visit, please call 01227 782066 to arrange a viewing appointment.


Create a memorial for a special person

Our beautiful tree sculptures are handcrafted by a local artist and decorated with graceful copper, silver and gold leaves and our platinum doves – all can be dedicated to a special person.

The Memory Trees are displayed in the reception of each of our hospices. They are open to any members of the public wishing to create a memorial, not just those touched by hospice care. You can visit your dedication at any time you wish and take a quiet moment to reflect.

Whenever I visit the hospice, I always go and look at the Memory Tree and think about Jill, and it’s very comforting to see that she will never be forgotten.
