Memory tree

Our Memory Tree is a unique and beautiful sculpture, hand crafted by artist Claudia Ashley-Brown. Each of its 336 leaves can be inscribed with the name of someone special as a wonderful and permanent tribute to those lives we wish to celebrate and remember.


Our Memory Tree is located very close to the main reception at St. Michael’s Hospice. You are very welcome to visit at any time and see the leaf you have dedicated, taking time to reflect on those special memories.

Your leaf will be placed on our tree for one year. After this time, you may choose to keep it on the tree for another year, or we can remove it and place into a presentation box for you to keep at home.

How to dedicate a leaf on our Memory Tree

To dedicate a leaf, please complete the form below, selecting your preferred leaf colour from the three options below. Please note, we will do all we can to allocate your preferred colour, subject to availability.

We ask for a suggested donation of £100 to dedicate a leaf which will help raise money for our patients and their families when they need us most. To make your donation please click here and input your donation amount. In the section, “Why are you making a donation?” select, “Memory Tree”.

Once we have received both your completed dedication form and donation we will organise for your leaf to be engraved . Please allow 28 working days for your leaf to be placed onto our tree.

  • Please enter the name as you would like it to appear on their leaf. Each leaf has space for 26 characters including spaces.
