Memory Tree 

This beautiful handmade sculpture is situated in a prime position in our hospice for all to see, and offers a unique and meaningful way to pay tribute to the memory of those you hold dear.

The solid copper, brass and aluminium leaves on our Memory Tree will be engraved with the name(s) of your loved one and will remain on the tree for as long as you wish. Every leaf not only creates a unique personal tribute, but they provide support for our patients and their families who may need hospice care in the future. 

Leaf dedication options:


Option 1

Dedicated a leaf for a suggested donation of £10 a month by direct debit to stay on our memory tree for as long as you wish (minimum of 12 months). 

Option 2
Dedicate a leaf for one year for a suggested donation of £120.

If you would like to dedicate a leaf on the Saint Francis Hospice memory tree, please follow the five easy steps below.

1. Download this leaflet or sign up online today.
2. Choose your preferred colour of leaf.  
3. Complete the form and send it to us. 
4. Once the leaf is engraved we will send you a photo of it in position on the tree. 
5. Renew or keep? If you dedicate a leaf for one year, we will then write to ask if you would like to renew your leaf for another year or whether you would like us to send it back to you to keep. 
If you would like to speak to a member of our In Memory Team about having a leaf dedication on our Memory Tree, please email or call 01708 753319. 


The rocks placed around the roots of the Memory Tree will be dedicated to the memory of those who have left us a gift in their will, to symbolise legacies as being the foundations for the future of hospice care. Leaving a gift to Saint Francis Hospice in your will can make a lasting difference to your local community, as currently one in five of our patients are cared for thanks to a legacy. If you would like to discuss gifts in wills with us, please call 01708 771403.

Bennetts Memory Tree

We are thrilled that our loyal supporters, Bennetts Funeral Directors in Brentwood, have launched their own memory tree. Commissioned by the team at Bennetts and located at their office, it works in exactly the same way as our tree in that all leaves dedicated will raise money for Saint Francis Hospice. If you would like to dedicate a leaf, visit their Brentwood office where they will be happy to assist you.
