In Memory Donations

In Memory Donations

As well as, or in place of floral tributes, some families like to request that donations in memory of a loved one be left to a specific charity.

A.R. Adams is in a position to set up and manage the full donations account on the family’s behalf. When instructing A.R.Adams to look after your families charitable donations you can chose either a traditional account or an online account. Most accounts will be kept open for approximately 6 weeks after the funeral service to allow family and friends plenty of time to make a donation.

Traditional Account

If requested we can take a donations box to the service so that any donations made on the day of the funeral can be collected.  The donations box will be brought back to our offices where we will list all the donations made.

We will collate the monies received on your behalf for approximately 6 weeks. At which time, we close the account sending all monies off to the selected charity. We will also ask the charity to write to you, confirming that they have received the donations.

Once the account is closed and the donations have been sent to the charity, we will inform our client in writing, enclosing a list of those who contributed along with any sympathy cards received.

Cash or Cheque donations can be received though Cheques should be made payable to the selected charity. We can also set up a personalised online donations page.

If you would like to make a donation in memory of a loved one, please enclose a note saying who the donation is in memory of and who it is from.

Donations in memory of loved one can be sent care of our offices, the addresses of which are below.

Online Account

A.R.Adams are able to setup a personalised memorial page online.  Family and friends can visit the page, leave messages and make donations online.

The online memory pages are a great way to share photos, memories and the money goes directly to your families chosen charites.
