Tree of Memories

The Kirkwood Tree of Memories is a beautiful way to honour someone you love.

‘Memories are timeless treasures. We should hold on to them and keep them close to our hearts.’

The Tree of Memories, located inside the hospice next to our main reception, incorporates gold, silver and bronze beech leaves that can be engraved with a name or short personal message.

Each leaf represents someone special, each with their own unique meaning. The tree connects these leaves to one another creating a striking display of tributes and memories.

The Tree of Memories offers a meaningful way to remember someone you love, whilst helping The Kirkwood Support Life for anyone affected by a life limiting illness across Kirklees.

You can choose to dedicate a bronze, silver or gold leaf, in memory of your loved one which can remain on the tree for one year, with the option of an annual renewal at a reduced price. There are also a limited number of gold sunflowers available which remain on the tree for three years.

After this period, you will be invited to renew your donation and keep your leaf or sunflower on the tree. Or we can send it to you for you to keep and cherish forever.

Information about the different leaves and payment options can be found below.

To purchase your leaf online, simply click the 'dedicate your leaf' button. If you'd like to speak to a member of our Fundraising team and purchase your leaf over the phone, you can do so by calling: 01484 557911.

You can also share your online leaf on social media for your friends and family to join you in paying tribute to your loved one.

Important information

Please allow a minimum of four weeks for your leaf or flower to be engraved. Prior to engraving, you will receive a certificate confirming the wording of your inscription.

Inscriptions should be a celebration of your special person, and will be displayed alongside others for everyone to see. For this reason, we respectfully request that dates of death are avoided.

You will be contacted after around 11 months from your initial donation to confirm whether you would like your leaf to be renewed or removed.
