You have the choice of requesting floral tributes for the funeral, donations to a charity of your choosing or a choice of either. Maybe the person who died left instructions regarding this or maybe you would like to choose a charity relevant to your loved-one.
Many families request donations to a charity in lieu of floral tributes. We are happy to receive those donations at our premises provided that they are made payable to the charity concerned. We will collate and list the donations before either handing them over to our client a few weeks after the funeral or forwarding them on to the charity if necessary.
Remember to include your name and the name of the person in whose memory the donation is being given. We would also recommend that gift-aid consent forms are included where possible. We can accept cash or cheques, however we cannot accept card payments for donations.
We at C. W. Lyons receive no commission from any outside agency but will be happy to pass on the contact details of good local florists.
