Funeral collections

If you're arranging a funeral collection for a loved one, there's information here to help you.

A funeral service can be an important moment to come together with friends and family to celebrate someone's life. If you'd like to ask for donations to Age UK, you can set up an online funeral collection or request collection envelopes to use at the service.

4 simple steps to set up an online funeral collection

Step 1: Tell us a few details about you and your loved one.

Step 2: Add the funeral time and location so others can see where and when it's taking place.

Step 3: Personalise your online funeral collection by adding photos of videos of your loved one. You can make your collection public or private.

Step 4: Share the link so others can visit, share memories and make donations.

If you'd like your online funeral collection to become a Tribute Fund to your loved one, all you need to do is hide the funeral service details or, if you'd rather, leave them on display. You can keep your online funeral collection open for as long as you want.

This was a funeral collection for my mother. She was 101 and felt that the elderly were increasingly excluded from society. Age UK can speak for them.
