Celebrate the life of a loved one with Trees of Love.

Our Trees of Love are special to so many people because they offer a lovely and personal way to remember those we aren’t able to spend time with at Christmas. You can dedicate a dove in their memory, which will hang on our Trees of Love and be illuminated throughout the festive season.

Join us for beautiful Trees of Love services with carols at our Ashford, Canterbury and Thanet hospices on Saturday 7 December 2019.

We also offer several indoor services with seating at venues across our east Kent community as follows:

  • Sunday 1 December, 5pm All Souls Church, Cheriton, Folkestone
  • Friday 13 December, 4.30pm Charing Crematorium, New Court Wood, Charing, Ashford
  • Friday 13 December, 4.30pm Barham Crematorium, Canterbury Road, Barham, Canterbury
  • Saturday 14 December, 3pm The Assembly Rooms, Church Approach, New Romney
    Held by Firmager Funeral Services
