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 8 December 2018.

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

Saturday 1 December, 5pm: St Nicholas Church, Church Lane, New Romney

Sunday 2 December, 5pm: All Souls Church, Cheriton, Folkestone

Saturday 8 December, 3pm: Firmager Funeral Services will be holding a services at The Assembly Rooms, Church Approach, New Romney

Sunday 9 December, 4pm: St Peter and St Paulm Church, River, Dover

Friday 14 December, 4.30pm: Barham Crematorium, Canterbury Rd, Barham, Canterbury

You can also light a virtual candle to celebrate the life of your loved one as part of Trees of Love, by visiting our Much Loved page here. Your candle will burn brightly on the page below over the festive season, along with any memories or messages you wish to share.
